Unique Crafts from Old Books You May Have Never Thought Of

If you’re like me, your house is overflowing with books.  I have not only my own, but many antique books that I inherited from older relatives.  Most of those I will probably never read, but I don’t really want to get rid of them either.  I was looking for some creative ways to re-purpose them, and here are some of the ideas that I found.  Click on the link below each picture to take you to the projects.
