Most of the Once A Book projects I’ve posted so far involve removing some or all of the inside pages of an old book. I know that is tantamount to heresy for some, but maybe I can redeem myself a little bit with today’s project.
Book beads from the smallest forest takes recycling a step further by putting those sad old pages back into circulation. They’re called “book beads” because the process is the same as the binding process used to make children’s board books. You don’t have to use book pages, though. Any type of paper will work, but book pages are especially fitting because the “pages” flip, like a tiny round book.
The beautifully photographed step by step tutorial can be found by clicking quick tutorial : : book beads. Don’t bother looking for the written instructions, it’s such an easy process, the photos tell the whole story.
As always, if you decide to make this project, send pictures and I’ll post them here.
