Marking the Spot

Just saw this idea & thought you might like it, too.
Have an old book that you loved that simply won't last through another reading, but you can't stand the thought of completely trashing it? Make a bookmark from the spine & keep it's memory with you for years to come. 

This is a great thing to do for your own personal use, but for gift ideas, place-settings for holiday meals ~ mark your family's & guests places with a book title that is a known favorite or suits their personality

Got clutter? Glue the book spines to a cheap little wooden box from Hobby Lobby, put your items in the box, put the box on your bookshelf & no one is the wiser . . . many opportunities for use.

I have used old book spines for bookmarks before, but never dressed them up with ribbons or tassels like these. What a great idea!

Pass it on . . .
