Hi Friends! Today I am sharing a project inspired by an abundance of Reader’s Digest condensed book that arrived at my local library. They were donations for the book sale but history shows these do not sell (not even for a 25 cents) but they were in really good condition and the patterns on the covers were lovely so the librarian asked me if I could use them in a craft. I thought that it would be cool to turn them into something that would sell and bring in some money for library programs. Check out the DIY book safe project:
I am curious as to what you would pay for one of these considering it is a fundraiser. I think it would be cool for gifting money or gift cards (or even an MP3 player or some other gadget) for the holidays. Imagine how surprised a kid would be to open this book up and find an ipod or money! It would be cool for indoor letter-boxing too! I am hoping that we can get a group of library patrons to volunteer to make some of these. The librarian says we can make a party of it, how fun would that be!?! Please feel free to take this idea and use it for your next library fundraiser too. I have some ideas planned for using up the paper rectangles we cut out of these too so they won’t go to waste either. If you have any ideas for the middles let me know! Let’s save unwanted book from the landfills. Thanks so much for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
