I used a 6" styro ball, cut up the pages of a book into circles about 2" (should have used smaller ones) and hot glued them on the styro ball. Moderately successful. For this look, I should have bigger styro balls. book page decor- this links directly to the flickr picture. No instructions, so I'm going to figure it out on my own.
This would be such an awesome lesson! Around valentines day, have students pick out a blind date with a book and then present their blind date to the class on Valentines Day! Still celebrating, but also learning.
