both are great ways to preserve a beloved book,
and save it from the Landfill.

Recently I began using my old pages from books
to create small doll houses
my favorite is Alice in wonderland

All papered inside out

each little cut out is coated 

                                                             A night light added for effect


                                                              A tea party inside

Great way to use old pages from a book!!!!
