Christmas book?

Somehow this failed to make it into my book haul post, but I realized my mistake last night and took the appropriate photos so I can show off what my husband did with the beautiful encyclopedia we found at a book sale a few months ago:

Why yes, that is a dark chocolate bar inside of my new, handmade book box. :D Did I mention the wonderful old book smell? Mmmmm.


  1. I've done that to a book! I made a huge mess, but I had such fun. I was experimenting, so I just used an old copy of Around the World in 80 Days. The cover is horrible. I'd love to do it to a pretty book. And then hide, like chocolate and stuff in it. Important stuff, if course. ;)

  2. Oh yes, chocolate is very important :)
