Book Purses


In light of marketing ideas, this one I think beats all....ah, maybe. You have to be crafty with this idea, and have the time. But it might not be a bad idea if you can part with one of your own hardcover book covers and create a book purse to give away as a prize on one of your website contests. I think this is kind of a hoot actually.

Ellen Meisner has a good example of one on her blog.

If you decide you like doing this kind of crafty thing, you could make a mint! Check out this company. $155 for a book purse! Or if you want to treat yourself big time, she has some beautiful book purses.
This would be a fun craft for kids to do too. You could find used books cheap at a Goodwill store or other thrift shops.

Have fun!

Hi InSpire -

Wouldn't this be a perfect gift for a book lover? Unfortunately, my crafting skills are not advanced enough to tackle this project.

How cool would it be to get your favorite book as a purse with the real thing tucked inside?

Blessings,
Susan :)

I'm not crafty... so this boggles my mind.
But definitely creative!
