Carmel from Our Fifth House share this project at Infarrantly Creative recently, and since it’s a great little recycling project, I thought I’d pass it along to my fellow Rescuers. To make these pretty boxes, all you need is an old book and some wine corks.
For this project, Carmel removed the book pages from the binding and cover. She covered the exposed binding with cute washi tape. Then, she stacked and glued the corks around the edge of one side of the book, to form the edges of the box. A small strip of leather and a nail form a hook and latch. Carmel tells us, “Since my husband and I save all of our wine corks and often times write the date to remember a special night these boxes hold some sentimental value as well.”
