GOOD IDEA




I saw this book made into a holder on line somewhere and I wish I could give the gal credit but cannot remember where I saw it.

It is very easy to do and just great for holding tags, atc's, etc. that we receive from our talented blogger friends.

I used an old Reader's Digest book - the kind with 3-4 different stories in it.
You just sit watching tv and fold each page in half all in the one direction. When you are finished the weight of it holds the book flat.

Took maybe an hour or so. I actually made one and then thought that was dumb as now I have to carry this larger item to Florida so gave it to Sue my daughter and made another one when I got down here. I had these books in the basement but they should be available at library sales, house sales, flea markets, etc.

Freda this is WONDERFUL! I love the idea of the book holding tags and such! Brilliant!

Thank you sooo much for stopping by TWICE today. The original post about my Gramma was one of the earliest things I wrote about. I was sooo new to blogging but even then I knew I wanted my blog to be more about life than anything else...

My daddy's name always seemed sooo old fashioned to me when I was little. I'm happy the old names are coming back...love them!

Bless you~Rebecca

Absolutely a brilliant idea! I hope you don't mind if I make one too (and also show my little CQTeers group how to make one). They would be PERFECT for displaying our atc's that we exchange every month!

It's perfect - I love how it looks! And an easy thing to sit and do while watching television.
I'll definitely be keeping my eyes open for just the right book to do this with...
