A big hello today to all of you lovely Glued to My Crafts fans! My name is Rachel and I blog over at I Heart Crafty Things. I’ve been a big fan of Glued to My Crafts for quite some time now and have recently fallen in love with all of Stacey’s book-inspired crafts. Just like Stacey, I also love making crafts based on books. In fact, our love for book-inspired crafts is what started I Heart Crafty Things. I love seeing a book come to life for my children from creating a craft or a piece of artwork and I love how proud they are of their creations. Today I’m excited to share with you 10 of my favorite crafts we’ve made based on books.
