Re-use vintage book covers!

Remember my previous post from 29th June about how to print pictures on old book pages? As I said, I love it when I come across a very nice old book with a vintage cover. I know that for a lot of people it is a sacrilege to damage a book - I used to feel the same way - but when the reason for it is to make something pretty, I sort of excuse myself.

Well, if the pages can be used to print pictures and make cards, why not use the cover for some DIY action as well?

Anamu explains on her blog how to re-style your router in a simple and very visual tutorial. You can use the premise for many other purposes, be creative! I am thinking of making one to keep/hide the mail, as I don't like to see it on top of the chest in the corridor.

Another great tutorial can be found on Cosmo Cricket, although this one is slightly more complex to work and requires a lot of skill. I guess I need more practice before I can adventure on this one, not to mention a sewing machine! But I guess kids would love it...
