DIY Altered Book Monogram. I normally don’t post things that require a band saw, but loved this project. Lots of people are using Reader’s Digest Condensed Versions of books because they are everywhere, at thrift stores and thick with good covers. Tutorial from Ashbee Designs here. *Also, if you feel guilty defacing books, I asked my mom what The League of Women Voters did with their books that didn’t sell after their huge annual book sale here.
