Recycle an Old Book into a Paper Vase

If you're like me you hate to get rid an old book. I don't care so much about the new ones - we give those to the library.
But old books - different story.
Recycle them into "vases"?
Look at these cool vases made from old books! What a neat way to add texture to a display. I'm really going to have to try this one.

I love this idea!! I have tons of old, worthless books (I used to sell books online) so this would be a great project for me.

I love recycling and DIY's! I never get around to doing any of the ones I find on the Internet because I can barely keep up with my own ideas, but I still like reading about them... This is a cool project from Sweet Paul. I like the way he's pasted some of the pages onto the wall to complement the vases!

Nice idea, lovely base.

Yes, very inspiring. And the way he staged this photo just makes it look even more appealing.
If any of you do this I would love to see the pictures!
