Handmade Heaven: Upcycled Books
When Golden Books become golden treasuresAimee Brock

What do you do when your treasured vintage books fall apart at the spine, or rip and become illegible? These clever crafters pay homage to their special childhood tales by upcycling their destroyed pages. The stories live on for another generation...and might encourage your children to want to go op-shopping with you and ‘save’ more books destined for destruction, unless a loving family takes them home.
Check out Mini-eco’s upcycled paper garland of the Tawny Scrawny Lion…or Cat Taylor’s Richard Scarry birthday party invitations… or Ruby in the Dust’s rebound Golden Book with extra blank pages for children to write notes…
Now I know what to do with my beloved Dr Seuss pages that lost their companions two decades ago! Time to dust them off and restore them to glory…
