Bookish

DD#1 has always been a bookworm. I could never read her enough stories when she was a small child. As a pre-schooler, storytime at the library was the highlight of her week. She taught herself to read before she started kindergarten. She's 28 now and the passion still hasn't let up. Last year she started keeping a book list to keep track of her literary accomplishments and the grand total was 112 books - can you imagine? This year she as already read 8 - just in the month of January! I made this vase using a book I bought at the thrift store - thought it was appropriate for her - all things considered. Hope she likes it!

I've seen items made from books similar to your vase, and I LOVE them. Why don't you give us a tutorial??? Please, please, please!
Hope your Valentines Day was wonderful.
