Several months ago, Paper Cloth Scissors had an article on making altered book houses. I loved the idea. While I didn't make mine exactly like the ones in the article, I love the way they turned out. Basically, they consist of an old book cover (the roof) and an altered journal (the house). This "roof" is actually the entire book, titled "Eppy Grams" that was just too adorable to remove the contents.
I made two different book houses as gifts. Unfortunately, I was only able to a few pictures of this one before the batteries in my camera died and it was time for me to give them to their recipients. I hope to get a few pictures of the other one soon. I'll post them if I do.
