Cute Book Crafts and Gifts for the Book Lovers in Your Life

I love everything having to do with books. Reading books, talking about books, watching book-to-film adaptations, making book crafts… You name anything having to do with bound collections of words and stories, I love it.

If I could get paid for just sitting around and reading all day long (with a few breaks for sweet treats), I would be the happiest girl in the entire world. Until that day comes, I’ll settle for reading during every spare moment that I have. And when I want to watch TV and give my brain a bit of a rest, I’ll curl up with a blanket and a few book crafts. In case you can’t tell, this is pretty much how my weekends go.

There’s just something so fun (and even inspiring) about making crafts that relate to literature. They seem so much more classy than other easy craft projects and are things that I’d use every day or have hanging in my house all year long. As much as it pains me to destroy books, I actually really love crafts with old books. I love making crafts with book pages or using the cover of a book to make something new (like a purse)!

When it comes to book crafts, the possibilities are pretty much endless. Below are just a few of the easy craft projects that I have on my to-do list for this year. I hope they make your to-do list too!
