Ex Libris Simple Bookish Art DIY {+ Free Printable}

Today I thought I'd share this quick, bookish, thrifty DIY that I created ages ago & have had hanging in my living room ever since.

Find a pretty bookplate you like {one you feel okay about cutting out of the book}.  Reader's Digest books are great for these - check used book stores, thrift shops, & yard sales!  Carefully cut out the page using a craft knife, frame, hang, & enjoy its bookish charm! 

Bookish Love,

P.S.: Since you'll be removing the page where you'd typically inscribe your name {declaring your ownership}, I thought I'd offer up these  printable bookplates inspired by the nautical one I found in a real tome {see pic above}.  Hope you love em!

Click on the image, then right click & save to your computer {or copy & paste}.  Open in a word document, resize if necessary, print, & enjoy!

CONDITIONS OF USE: My printables are free for personal use only.  Feel free to share them on Pinterest provided you credit & link back to {Bess' Bag}.  If you want to blog about these printables, or share a project you created using them, it would be fabulous, just be sure to credit & link back to {Bess' Bag} (feel free to use 1 or 2 photos, but please don't share the actual printable on your site - just add a link to it).  Thanks & enjoy!
