An Old Textbook Gets New Life

Do you have some big old textbooks from school days that you know you’ll never use again but want to keep for sentimental reasons? Don’t keep them packed away, we’ve got a super simple idea for them that will take you seconds and cost you nothing.

Pick a hard-covered book and open it up to the centre (it doesn’t matter if the cover looks hideous or snooze-worthy because it will be face down). Simply fold over a few lots of two or three pages in towards the spine starting from the centre and you’ve got an instant decorative display add some warmth and dimension to a book shelf.

For more decorative ideas with books, see our post on vintage books.
