We have all gotten the gift of a book with a sweet, heartfelt inscription… but here’s a way to advance the giving of books to new, impressive heights. Wrap a series of your favorite hardbound books with solid paper. Make sure to include an inside flap to keep the cover in place. With rubber stamps, stickers, photographs, paper ribbon, or any embellishments you can find at the craft store, label the book with the title, the author, a favorite quotation...the possibilities are endless! These books will be forever sitting on your recipient’s bookshelves, beaming with personality and style!
