Scrumptious Bookish Crafts

Scrumptious Bookish Crafts. Recently the lovely blog Candid Cover published a post about hosting a Book Swap Party which I immediately saved under ‘one day when I can get enough bookish friends together’.  It got me thinking about what crafts we could make during the party which lead to hours online literally drooling over beautiful bookish craft possibilities.

A list of bookish crafts that I would love to make

If you’re planning a Book Swap Party, thinking of making a gift for a bookish friend or just want something fun to do during the holidays then take a visit to these brilliant crafters for the instructions to make these scrumptious bookish crafts.

  1. I am in no way crafty. So whenever I see bookish stuff like this I get jealous. But I guess that’s what etsy is for.

  2. These look so fun. I love so many of them. I really love the book necklace and the ornament. I might even be inspired to try one of these this summer- and I am usually not crafty. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  3. I love the way these look, but I find it so difficult to cut up a book! Especially old ones as they have survived so much! These would make awesome classroom decorations for my English classroom when I graduate college.
    Thanks for stopping by The Local Muse

  4. Oh my goodness, these are so lovely. I envy those who have the patience and skill to make such wonderful crafts. Hope you get a chance to do these!

  5. Yeah…I would love to make all of that. But I’m not crafty. I love the Zipper Book Clutch though.

  6. These are so cool. I wish I was crafty enough to do something like this. I especially love that wreath and the cute keychains.

  7. Oh my gosh these are ADORABLE ^-^ I don’t wear jewelry but I sure do love those necklaces! They all look like they’re fun to make!

  8. Jo

    Wow these are really cute! I love the book roses!

  9. I need all of these in my life. Especially the first necklace 😀 Happy reading! https://www.curious-daisy.com/top-ten-tuesday/ten-booktubers-you-should-follow/

  10. If only I was crafty! These are all so neat. I have a pair of earrings that were made using clippings from Agatha Christie books. And a necklace made of a Pride and Prejudice quote. Etsy is such a wonderful place. I love those Leather book necklaces you shared.

  11. It is amazing how many bookish crafts exist! I am going to have to save that bookish jewelry box for a day that I need a relaxing afternoon craft. Thank you so much for the mention. <3

  12. I am the least crafty person you could imagine which means I admire anyone with any craft ability! I love those paper stars and garlands (might get my crafty daughter to make me some!).

  13. Wow! What beautiful bookish gifts! I’m sure any bookworm would love these.

  14. What a neat topic, Sue. Those book roses are absolutely gorgeous! What a fun time all of us would have crafting some of these cute ideas. 🙂
