I love making stuff from books and pretty paper. But it’s a bit sacrilege to cut up books, right? Well….not exactly.
There was a really bad printing of “Prisoner Of Azkaban” that just fell apart. We didn’t want to throw it away, so we cannibalized it. As in – UPcycled it.
My sweetheart wrote me an adorable story one year as a Yule gift and used the cover as the cover for the book.
The title of the book is The Hound and the Hedgehog. I later bought this little stuffed hedgehog and put glasses and a peg leg on him. If you read the story, you’ll see why. I’m hoping we can record an audio version of the book and put it on his website this summer.
We also made bits of the Harry Potter book into New Years cards this year.
And now, I have taken some bits of the book and made pendants. They have the chapter stars, or names that you’d recognize. I mean, come on, Hermione is just the best!
So, I have plenty of that book to make jewelery from. I think that I’ll get some larger hinged style pendants so I can put larger chunks of the dialogue in the pendant. These are very small and make it hard to fit more than one word. I dig the Snape one, though. Can’t wait to see how they look once attached to a whole piece! I’d better stop blogging and get busy!
