On Thursday 5th of this month, it is World Book Day. World Book Day is a registered charity on a mission to give every child and young person a book of their own. It is a celebration of writers, illustrators, books and the choice to read. This year being the 23rd year it has been running.
I reached out on Twitter to team up with Viking. The idea was to combine reading books and stationery and then get crafting! They sent me a box of goodies to craft with in celebration of this day! Stationery and craft mail are some of my favourite kinds of mail. I was gifted book pages / coloured card / stamps and ink / stamp cutters and a book with different craft ideas! Some easy and some more intricate designs.
I am going to share with you what I crafted with these book pages.
I first decided to get creative in my bullet journal. I ripped the pages and glued them in. I used the stamper set, I don’t get to use a stamps very much. I loved how the letters looked on the page. I thought the quote was very fitting for World Book Day.
I looked through the art book and found an idea to use pages of books for greeting cards.
I love making cards, as a family we always used to make cards for the rest of the family. So this brought back a lot of fond memories.
Being creative like this is a great way to reuse books you no longer want to read. You can also create characters with your children from their favourite books. The possibilities are endless.
I am looking forward to being creative with more book pages in the future. What a great way to celebrate World Book Day. You can check out the hashtag #VikingWorldBookDay and see what others have created and share your own creativity.
Have a great World Book Day! Enjoy your books whether you are reading them or crafting with them.
Have you ever crafted using book pages before? What is one of your favourite books? I’d love to hear in the comments.
