I'm a sucker for books, especially used books. When we bought our home, the first addition we made were custom built-in book shelves in the living room and the master bedroom. Even with those additions its not quite enough so I'm planning on a wall to wall built-in bookshelf for the basement. (shhhhh, I haven't told the hubby yet)
So when a friend told me she signed up as an Usborne Books consultant, it didn't take long to talk me into hosting a party. (Click Here to see her facebook page and learn more about Usborne Books.)While Usborne focuses on children's books on the educational side, book-page themed party favors and prizes seemed appropriate. I used several ideas from Pinterest as inspiration. You can see my Love Me Some Books board here.

My daughter wanted to play with my paper hole punch after watching me punch out all the circles for the garland. Seeing his sister having so much fun my son jumped in, too. While I glued and sandwiched away, they created their own art project entirely on their own. I'm so proud of their budding artistic talent!
I'm looking forward to the party. Since its a couple weeks away I might make a few more book-page items. Whatever isn't given away can stay at my house!
