Close look - book one.

A simple, inexpensive project using old books. Also a great conversation piece. The folded books can be dispayed laying down on a coffee table or add a simple plate hanger and hang them on the wall.

Pattern or design used: a decorating book

busymelifera writes: Nice work! I like that you kept the vignette tone on tone. I've seen these done before and wondered how they'd been hung. Would never have thought of using a plate hanger! I tried to do one long ago. Very time consuming, but the repetitive work of folding can be very therapeutic. They can look very posh if you gild the pages too! Posted: 7:50 pm on December 4th
