    WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!?! SUCH A WAIST OF BOOKS.

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.

Shells and Twine Bookmark: Craft a lovely bookmark to remind you of days at the beach. Natural string fits right in with seashore finds, such as shells, buttons, and bottle caps. Knot eight 18-inch-long strands together at one end to make the main bookmark; knot 8 inches below the first knot, or farther depending on the size of the book. Drill holes in items to attach to the string ends or use hot glue.
