diy bookcover & bookmark {via twig & thistle}

they featured it last year as a wedding favor idea.
i have loads of patterned paper that would be perfect for this project.
i love giving books as gifts. wouldn't this be a pretty way to make it extra special?
or if you had a book club party, these would be great little happies for the guests!


  1. I love the colors...really freshens up the books...only I wonder, "how do they find their books on the shelf?" lol

  2. So pretty!
    You reminded me of school. Our teachers had us cover our text books in brown paper bags. Then we couldn't resist decorating them. Or scribbling love notes on them! ;)
    Of course, maybe every school did this? Or maybe we were just hicks? I don't know? Hehe


  3. or even just to make your bookshelf look purty :)

  4. love it! I like how they're all in one hue!

  5. I love this!
    If you make these you definitely need to post them!

  6. Adorable!

    And your comment on my blog- LOL. :)

  7. How funny..I just did this with some of my old hardback books to put in my girls' room. It totally took me back to high school days when we had to cover our textbooks with brown paper bags. Much more fun this time. You're right...a perfect gift idea!

  8. Oh wouldn't I love a nice little book club! and this would be a happy book club idea, indeed. :)
