I bumped into these original handbags today and I was so surprised by the whole concept that I couldn’t stop staring! A perfect idea for the stylish booklover don’t you think?

In “A Spoonful of Chocolate Hope” Etsy shop you can browse through a nice variety of purses. As the creator mentions: “No pages are harmed during the purse making process.. I take gently used books and only use the covers, the pages are still fully in-tact and you are still able to read the book. I then take the sleeve and wrap it back on to the fully in-tact book and donate it to a Refugee Center here in Arizona called the IRC.”.

Re-use is the password nowadays!

Hmmm this post reminds me a video that I've watched on youtube: How To Make a Handbag Out of a Recycled Book: http://www.youtube.com?v=m4RFH0q0Osk&feature=PlayList&p=927436B26E434BB5&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=82
Lovely, isn't it?
