Emily Gets Crafty

As a book nerd, I'm always on the look out for crafts that involve re-purposing some of the "older" books I find in book sales.  Not only do they add a personal touch to my home, they are also just totally awesome.  I have no qualms about tearing up a book.  It's had a good life.  Now it can remain beautiful as a picture or flower bouqeuet.  Usually the vision in my head is much different than the final product, but this particular craft turned out okay!  Thanks to bywilma.com and fullofgreatideas.blogspot.com for their great tutorials on printing onto book pages.  I decided to add so of my favorite book quotes and images to make it super special.

 "I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it.  I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia." ~The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis

 "Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy.  They don't eat up people's gardens,
don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. 
That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."  ~To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly.  What is essential is invisible to the eye."  
~The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"We're all stories in the end.  Just make it a good one, eh?"
~Doctor Who
