Making a Journal with Your Used Books

Jul 15, 2008
There are many people that have decided that they were going to make things out of their used books in the home that they live in. You have probably seen these books and might even wonder how to do it yourself.

Creating a journal out of your used books is really not that hard at all to do. There are a few things that you will need to do to get it started and to keep going with it. So many creative people will use this method to help get rid of the books that they liked, but only wanted to read a couple of times, but you are probably wondering how you can make your own journal out of used books. It's really not all that hard at all.

You need to find a book that you have that you are not going to be reading anytime soon. This way when you start with your journaling you will not be upset about the used books that you are working with. Then you will need some paint, maybe a few pictures of yourself or people that you care about. This will help to make your book as personal as possible. Then you will just need to simply color and paint the book the way that you want. You can also add effects to the used book to make it more fancy and more of what you want to have. This can be highly rewarding if you are able to really do it for yourself. Once you have painted the book and added your photos, all you will need to do is to let it dry. Then you can use it for whatever you want to and have a great looking book while you are at it.

When you want to turn your used books into a fun and functional journal, you only have to do a few little things that you may not have even thought of. This is so that the journal will be more of what you want and not what people might expect from you. This book is also a way of helping the planet; because you are reusing a book that you may have thought would be destroyed otherwise, and could very well have been without you. You may also hire people to make your books for you if you don't think that you are creative enough to do it on your own, but you really should try to do it if you can. This will help to keep the book personal and more of you in it for your children when they may look at it.
