I was a little surprised to find the July/August issue of Somerset Life in JoAnn’s already this morning. Magazines were on sale this week so I bought it. It was a rainy day here so both daughters & I were laying on my bed this afternoon reading magazines when Jordy asked, “Mom, didn’t you make something that looked exactly like this?” I took a look at the Bling for Your Books headline and squealed, “Those ARE mine!”
I love surprises like that. I just wish I had known before I bought it. If I do get a copy in the mail I may have a giveaway on my blog!
These were super simple to make.
I used cardboard out of some of the vintage board games I collect. Snippets of text from old books were glued on with a glue stick. (I found some books at a recent library sale that were falling apart but had GREAT text and illustrations.) Then on one end I punched a hole, stuck a vintage rhinestone button through, and twisted a tiny piece of wire through the back. (In case I wanted to reuse these buttons later. They can be easily removed.)
‘Til the next project!
