    Great idea: Turn old book spines into book marks!

  • Trish Glavin

    CRAFTY IDEA: Recycle your tired old books and make Vintage Book Spine Bookmarks. I love this idea, but it feels like a knife in my literary heart to see a book being torn asunder even if it is upcycled.

Handmade Book Spine by users_lib, via Flickr

Mark with the Spine ~ Here's a past-perfect idea for old books. -- If a vintage book is falling apart, gently remove the spine from the binding and neatly trim the edges to create a bookmark. -- Using glue, adhere the spine to heavy card stock. -- To seal, brush on a light coat of decoupage medium. -- Punch a hole in the top edge; thread a corded tassel through.

When old books are completely beyond repair, use the spine as a lovely old bookmark - great DIY gift with a book.

Now I know there are no original thoughts... I had this same idea and have bags of books waiting to be cut. I had a few other thoughts too, perhaps I'll try them first.
