To celebrate Trash to Treasure Week on American Crafter I have an up-cycling tutorial for you!
Meet my cardboard bookshelf!
Isn’t she a beauty?
***Try to ignore the worn spots- this has been HEAVILY used for 3 months- I made it awhile back and forgot to take a photo
Here’s what you’ll need:
Sturdy cardboard box- the thicker the better
1. Cut off one side of your box and tape down any loose ends
2. If you want you can use the leftover cardboard to build a little shelf.
3. Using torn book pages and your mod podge go to town and cover the whole box
4. Now you can embellish! I used my Cricut and SCAL to cut out some silhouettes of little miss reading for each end and then a full alphabet.
I love the personal touch!
This has been one of my favorite projects. Little miss plays with her books every day. I put it right in front of our bookshelf in the living room and we keep all of her library books in it.
