12 Days of Christmas Gift Ideas for Book Lovers Day 9: Upcycled Book Journal & Giveaway

I saw today's gift idea for the first time at an arts & crafts fair in the Washington DC area. I didn't actually buy one then but knew I would eventually. I now have four or five of my own and not only are these awesome as journals, they are also great conversation starters because I almost always have one in my purse for writing things down.

I'm not sure who created the ones I first saw in DC, but some of my current favorites are designed by Daphne PaperCake Creations. She takes books and repurposes them into these great vintage book journals complete with the covers of the book and a couple of pages from the actual book itself.




With the right book, these could make a great personalized gift for someone. I actually have one made from "Are You My Mother" that I've been writing notes to my mom in for mother's day and think it'll be the perfect gift. Daphne has all sorts of options available and is willing to work with you if there's a book that you'd like to see made into a journal.

And best of all, Daphne has offered to giveaway one of her beautiful journals to one Book Nook Club winner. You can either choose one of the journals she's already made that is up on her Etsy shop or choose from one that she's made for her shows (she'll send you pictures). You can find out more about Daphne and PaperCake Creations on her Etsy shop or on her blog
