DCD #261 – National Library Day

Use a book!  Our challenge at Die Cuttin’ Divas this week is to use a book on your project.  I have a couple of damaged dictionaries that I scooped up when our school library was discarding them.  This was the perfect use for them!

I knew I didn’t want to make a card.  I wanted to try something new.  My old pal, Google, gave me some good ideas, and I did try something new!

I cut out a pair of hearts and used the rhinestone feature on my Silhouette software to make equidistant little holes around the edge.  Then I stitched them together using Trendy Twine, stuffing them with cotton balls along the way.  This is it:

I’m sure there are dozens of ways of incorporating a book into a craft project.  We’d love to see what you come up with.  Please link your book project over at Die Cuttin’ Divas!



About Evelyn

I created this little blog so that I could have a place to show different crafts that I make for my family, my friends, my students, and myself! I have always enjoyed crafting. I particularly love paper and wool, and that's what I'm currently working with.
