Next time you have a great hardcover book that you are done reading, why not use it for something crafty? If you simply fold each page in half, it basically becomes a photo holder (see picture above), that you can put photos in - you can make one for vacations you've gone on, or a baby one with your children's baby pictures. The possibilities are endless. And of course if you wanted to add a little more flair, you could cover the book with some decorative paper before you add the pictures!
A special thanks to my wonderful cousin April for this crafty and thrifty idea!
