Abigail Beal Abigail Beal DIY gift ideas

To a booklover, what could be more beautiful than a lovely book? We thought you would agree. That's why we are sharing some of our favorite DIY book art projects with you.

Some booklovers are hesitant to turn a book into something else. Well, because it is after all, a book! But there are times we all weed and prune out our bookshelves. It becomes time to get rid of books we've read so we can add terrific books to our collection. This can become the perfect opportunity to turn some of these books into lovely DIY book art. So you can continue to enjoy these books, or even give this art to family or friends as a thoughtful gift. Because we know that a lot of the people you know are booklovers too!

Book Safe

Everyone loves book safes, because not only does it continue to look just like a book - but you've got a secret hiding place too! So you can stash away a candy bar, gift card, cellphone, jewelry or just about anything else that you want to keep all your own. This is a good way to keep valuables safe while in plain sight - very few burglars are going to look through your bookshelf at your Dickens' classics! It’s also a terrific option if you have nosy roommates or family members too. So give this one a try.
