There seems no end to my love of things made from upcycled books - can't resist the urge to chop them up. And also to read snippets of sentences as I use them, which is sometimes a truly bizarre experience.
See, I just couldn't get the image of these out of my head. They were speaking to me of pinecones. So I punched a load of small circles out of a hapless book and used sewing pins to fasten them onto a polystyrene ball. And my paper pinecone itch was scratched. I may try a few more (right after I buy another tub of pins).
