Bookish Crafts That Are Easy on Your Pocketbook (see what I did there?)

Just hear those bells a jinglin' a ring-ting-tinglin' too. No? Nothing? It's probably because, if you're like me with five kids and a football field-length shopping list, your pocketbook is bereft of coin (or bells). So here are some crafty ideas for the bookish people in your life that shows off your appreciation for literature and your mad power tool skills.

From Better Homes and Gardens -
"Create conversation at the dinner table with this out-of-the-ordinary runner. A discarded book with soft, worn pages works best. Lay the pages flat on the floor in the length and width you'd like your runner. On the back, carefully tape the pages together. Use a crafts decorative-edge punch to create a border that suits your style."

You may want to start on this one early if it's a gift. O.o

I'd love to see the finished product! Send them to me at my Facebook page!
