This would be a neat Valentine's Day gift. if I could bring myself to punch holes in a book. Maybe I could use old magazines instead. Punch a hole in the shape of a heart into an old book and arrange them into a frame for a decoration.
I really like this idea for an office or a library. Convert an old globe into a pendant light! Seems easy enough. Buy a lamp kit at your local hardware store, take apart a globe and drill a larger hole for the light. Put remainder of light together.
