Recycling Old Books into Baubles!

Looking for a family activity for a cold winter’s afternoon?

We would never advocate cutting up books as a library that prides itself on the preservation of books, but the modern day books that may have been chewed, man handled and scribbled in by young people will not stand the test of time like our well built volumes!

This slideshow is a simple idea of what you could create at home, recycling old tatty books with a bit of glue and a touch of paint/glitter.  Perfect to add a personal touch to your tree this year.

So let’s get cutting!  (NB: There is a wealth of quilling ideas and techniques online, so do take the time to look)
