~recycling vintage childrens books~

I have been busy getting ready for the show in Snohomish this weekend. I had a bunch of vintage kids books with pages missing out of them, and decided rather than throwing them away, I would turn them into adorable little picture frames for kids rooms!
Anything that doesn't sell on Saturday I will be putting in my etsy shop on Monday!
Love, love, love the colors!
The one below would make a great teachers gift or a gift for your Liberian at school!
A little beachy theme!

Another frame that would work great for a teacher gift!
Don't forget to come and visit me this Saturday, main street Snohomish WA. 8:30 am!

I wish I knew how to build frames like this. Are you just decoupaging (sp?) the pages to the frame? Love it!
I will be looking at your Etsy page for any leftovers!!!!!!!!

You are so stinkin' clever! I have some pages from my favorite childhood book "I can do anything almost" and have held on to them for years not knowing what I would ever do with them. Thanks for the great idea! You rock!

I think these are the cutest frames ever! Please let me know when you put them in your shop. I would love to feature them on Everything Etsy.
