Image of Simply Elegant Memory Books

You can easily transform old or new books, binders, photo albums, day planners or guest books into very beautiful works of art. All you do is wrap Homespun® yarn around them, then personalize them by gluing on fun things that apply to the book you are covering. Personalizing memory books can be a lot of fun. For instance, for our baby book, we have cut out an old greeting card, then glued lace and trimming around it to frame it. For our wedding guest book, we glued two ribbon appliques and ribbon. We have even covered a pen to match! These books take very little time and make great gifts. Have fun!
