I make a lot of things. Some of it I use to decorate my house, some I sell on etsy, and some I make and then stick in the closet because I've run out of space for them in my apartment...
but when I heard that our local used bookstore was having an altered book contest, I decided I just had to do it anyways!
I wasn't sure what I wanted to do but after some debate, I decided to watercolor some of the pages and cut them into circles to make into flowers. I straightened out paperclips, cut them to different lengths, and hot glued the circles on to them to ends to make sort of abstract flowers. I poked shallow holes in the book with my exacto knife and then hot glued each flower in...and then did that 100 more times...and then presto! I made something I was proud of!
(please pardon my gratuitous detail shots, I really couldn't help myself!)
