Call me crazy, but the closest I can come to damaging a book is using the yellow pages for scrap paper.
I love the phone chargers you see on Pinterest and Etsy that are made of old books, but I just can’t bring myself to forever destroy a perfectly good book that someone, somewhere, might enjoy reading. (Don’t roll your eyes at me. If the book is ripped apart and unreadable, have at it. But my love for reading pre-dates my love for crafting, and I just can’t justify destroying someone else’s work of art to create my own.)
So when I saw a stash of fake books (you know…hollow inside, magnetic closure….could be used to hold small items like keys, but usually very expensive) marked down 70% I couldn’t wait to make my guilt-free paperless version!
