Convert a book into your favorite wallet.
The only wallet I've ever owned would be a coin purse at best, with a single 4.5" by 3" compartment for anything and everything. Thus, when I saw tutorials for making book safes, I wanted to try turning a book into a wallet of sorts. This was an idea that I had a while back, and it was reawakened by none other than a gorgeous, well-loved book.

For the faint of heart out there, no; I'm not the type for book butchery. Instead, I see this as a way to reuse a worn, cherished book. I saw this old book (The Chimes by Charles Dickens) during a book sale for which I was volunteering and the idea came rushing back, begging to be completed.

So here are pictures of the project, in all its completed glory!
If you want the tutorial I made for this (SORRY but I deleted the pictures from my computer), go to instructables.com and just search up "Vintage Book to Wallet."
