Oh how I love old books! I'm that person you see at the library sale buying up a pile of old books. Sometimes I go to used book sales and people ask me, "What are you going to do with all those books?" I like books in general (for reading, of course!) but I also like to craft with them. I think a project that has that great lettering from an old book has a cool look that works in a variety of decorative schemes.
The other reason I like using old books in craft projects is because it really appeals to the "green side" of me. I like things to have a new purpose of some type. With the holidays around the corner, projects like this also make for a unique gift. I've rounded up a collection of different projects that you can make using old books, and you're bound to find at least one thing on this list to give that hard-to-buy for friend of yours.
