Dictionary Print Bookends

Pin It! I created these bookends out of paper mache letters I purchased at my local craft store. I made a video to show you how exactly I made them. I actually made them for my son who is buying his first home but I think I am going to need to make myself another set. I love them so much, they really turned out awesome. I used a discarded "Slang and Unconventional Term Dictionary" that had been discarded from our local library to cover the letters. The words and definitions make great conversation piece also. They are hysterical to read!

what a cool gift idea! my daughter is also in process of buying her first home and you are absolutely correct...this makes a great housewarming gift. I can even see giving this to a school teacher, if I knew any (LOL)

First awesome job love them will will be making them. Second please please do not stop making these videos. This is how we can make the items you make and that we would have never thought off it. Thanks so much for all the hard word. I am still trying to work on making tags look good and now I have to try this. Girl keep them coming.

Yet another good use for those boxes of books I got off Freecycle! I'm still chewing on that idea to use the Shakespeare pages on a Valentines card. You are so creative!

These are great. Thanks for sharing. I really need gift ideas for my read-a-holic 13 year old and these would be perfect.
