Old books have always been a passion of mine. Ever since I as a 18 year old covered my entire bathroom with the pages from 1800 C books. It was really cool. Often you can find old beautiful books that are missing pages, or missing all pages like the large book cover above. I turned it into a piece of art by adding a page from an old book and cutout butterflies make from books as well.

I glued them on the book with small glue-dots. They are easy to remove and you can move the butterflies around. The butterflies cutout makers can be bought at marthastewartcrafts.com Have fun and a great weekend.
