I love books. A lot. Most people who have met me know this. I tend to get a lot of books as gifts, which is AWESOME. Every once in a while someone passes along something wretched. Something painful. Something that leaves young female minds believing they should throw themselves off cliffs when their boyfriend leaves. Something that….. sparkles.
Before I discovered the glory of Pinterest I was at a loss as to what I should do with such gifts. Should I have a bonfire? I tried selling them to used bookstores, but no one would take them. Now, however, I have the perfect outlet!
I just rolled each page into a cone and glued the edges down. Then I glued them onto a circular piece of cardboard. Super easy and super cute. You can head to GoodWill and pick up a few paperbacks if you don’t have any less than desirable novels lying around. They make great gifts!
This was one of the easiest pieces of artwork I have ever made. And the simpler the task the more wine can be consumed. Let me just tell you, I had a wine-tastic evening making the dahlias.
