Reinvent an old book


Why have books sitting on the shelf gathering dust when you could turn them into this lovely display? Now that paper books are a bit of a novelty, this technique will turn your book shelf into a work of art. It's fun and easy and everyone will be impressed by your creative flair. I'm surprised by how many visitors comment on mine and they've inspired me to share this simple decorating idea with you.

Time: 10 minutes, depending on how many pages you wish to fold
