Recycled Crafts: Book Planters!

March 1, 2013 at 4:37 pm Leave a comment

Happy Friday everyone! We have been busy at Recycled Reads this past week gearing up for our 4th anniversary celebration this Saturday, March 2nd. We will be selling handmade book planters at the celebration, the proceeds of which will help pay for our brand new window wrap.

These book planters wouldn’t have been possible without Mr. Recycled Reads, who graciously donated his time and energy into cutting holes into the soon to be planters. Thank you!

For those of you who are curious, we first applied Mod Podge to the edges of the pages to make the books more solid for cutting. To cut the circular holes, we used a Dremel, clamping the book down for added stability.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow, March 2nd to see our new window wrap and buy a planter while supplies last!
