What's better in the dead of winter than curling up with a good book? How about decorating with them.
Books are good for so much more than the obvious. Stacked artfully, they are both furniture and accessory.
Books are big in fashion as well with the rise of the book clutch - there's Kate Spade, Olympia Le Tan's needlepoint version, Greyhound's leather version and Rebound Designs version (the only one actually made from a book) - all of which will set you back $150 to $325 - if you can even find one.
I hope to have a very simple book clutch DIY for you in the near future.
In the meantime, check out this video for making a DIY book clutch with fabric sides and wood handles.
Below, some stylish stacking and clutchable clutches.
Do you stack your books or shelve them? (Why is it when I stack my books on the floor, they just look discarded?) Would you cut up a book to make a clutch?
