Book Wrapping Party

How can you tell a book is well-loved? The pages are worn in, the corners are a little bent, and the covers start to fade a little. I have many of such books, so my friends and I decided that to keep our precious books in "loved" form (and not totally tattered) we would give them a little makeover.

So one sunny afternoon we gathered our books and materials and went to a friend's home for a book wrapping party. We used gorgeous rice paper and contact paper to make our book covers, so they were attractive and durable. My sister got fancy and layered two different kinds of paper on one cover (top right and middle left), and another friend used her scraps to make pretty bookmarks. Honestly, I am not the craftiest of people so it was a bit of a challenge for me, but in the end I had four beautiful protected books (middle right).

To celebrate each newly covered book we sat among our scraps and nibbled on beignets and sipped on coffee. We were all quite famished, so we feasted on a delicious fondue platter.

Just an idea for a productive, fun, and delicious party =)
