This is a great DIY project to put those old Lonely Planets to good use, but since doing this I've been noticing all the nice covers of old books. They are just too beautiful to sit on a shelf at the second hand store, so go make your own!
What you'll need:
- Stack of old books
- Clock mechanism (with a long pin if you're using paperbacks)
- Sharp craft knife
- Metal ruler
- Cutting mat
- Craft glue
- Colored markers in case you do any damage to the book covers
- Rubber bands/clamps/more books
If you make one of your own, I'd love to see it! Send me a picture on Instagram @craftswithellen.
