February–almost Valentine’s Day!

UPCYCLED HANDMADE BOOK!Looking for an idea? Try making something by hand–even a book!

There are directions for making such an original at this link:

friDIY {A Funny Little Valentine} .

Great instructions are included. I, especially, like the binding instructions for sewing together your pages.

As a fan of making books, I upcycled a few items–papers, thin boxes, ribbons– to make  a Valentine book for a special someone.

Inside the book, there is a space where I  just have to add an original haiku poem that I wrote and, voila, a gift is ready for the day!

You can adapt this idea for anyone or any occasion. Enjoy!
