There’s little I love more than curling up with a good book (find a few of my favourites here), but once I’ve finished reading it, there’s no reason that pleasure and joy can’t continue.

Since reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up (read more about that journey here), we’ve worked hard to live a simpler, more clutter-free life. Which means that, instead of keeping shelves and shelves (and shelves) of books, I’m passing along any finished books for someone else to enjoy.

But every once in a while, the crafty, creative side of me takes over and I just can’t resist turning one of those beautiful books into fun little craft.

I’ve been pinning away all sorts of crafty book ideas for years now and thought it would be fun to pass along a few of my faves with y’all.

Who knew a collection of simple black and white text could look so beautiful!
