When I think about all the books that get thrown away, all those words and thoughts from somebody’s dreams, it makes me feel like the world became just a little bit darker. Colder. Sad.
This ability to recycle books into beautiful pieces of art allows for there to be a little more light and life brought to not only the written word, but to our homes, families, friends and co-workers.
It’s even better that each one can be customized just for you. Your favorite colors, hand made bows, handmade paper flowers, ribbons, buttons, Czech glass, crackle glass, aurora borealis crystals… so many awesome and beautiful things can be done that it’s mind boggling!
These are so much prettier in person. No matter how you photograph them, when you see it in real life… wow!! This candle has over 255 folds in it, as well as over 470 individual cuts, and comes from hours of painstaking care and work before its ever even decorated. Flowers are handcrafted from book pages, mulberry paper, card stock, origami paper, and even hand dyed book pages and papers. I think all that work yields a beautiful result. Topped with a tea light that gently flickers like a flame, this is the ultimate in show stoppers.
Feel free to come visit my Etsy shop as well as my blog. Leave a comment, recommend a book or just say hi. I hope that you have a great week this week. I’ll share more book art soon! Stay safe my friends!
