Altered Books and Other Creative Tidbits



NTRLS just hosted Julie Ousley from the New Braunfels Public Library for an altered books workshop. Do you have books leftover from your booksales? They can still make money for the library. Julie makes altered books, book purses and furniture that is sold at the library. She gets many of her ideas from Crafters. Here are some of her designs. What a creative way to discard those books!

  1. The actual website for altered books is www.crafsters.org. Sorry for the confusion.

  2. www.craftster.org, actually.

    For altered books, check out their forum labelled : PAPER CRAFTS, JOURNAL & BOOK MAKING > Completed Projects: Reconstructed http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=18.0

    And for purses, including book purses, check out their forum titled: PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS > Completed Projects: Reconstructed http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=76.0

    Watch your world expand!
