Thrifty Thursday - 7 ways to upcycle the humble book

The humble book is a great read but when it's all read and done, it collects dust.  And in my house that's a regularity.  I came across these super cute ideas to upcycle books and they are all going on my to-do-list!  While I might feel a little guilt when starting to cut through the pages I know it's better to upcycle them, then leave in a pile somewhere to catch dust, unless it's a much loved favourite like Pride & Prejudice or 50 Shades of Grey or whatever your favourite may be.
