I’m always fascinated by what folks do with romance novel covers on Etsy. If you have a giant pile of romances laying about the house (like sloths!) and you don’t know what to do with them (and really, who does know what to do with slothful romances?) here’s some Etsy-approved ideas for craftmaking.
Only the best covers can become pendants. But if it’s a woman’s backside, is it really gay? And if a gay tree falls in the woods, is there wood?
You can also make greetings cards out of them, though it’s always better if you (ahem) refrain from referring to them as “sleazy romance novels.” Sleazy. Wow. Haven’t heard that one deployed in awhile.
But if you’ve got a ton, and I mean a TON of romances you want to display and not nearly enough bookshelves to lovingly place each one face-out on the shelf for maximum admiration, how about…furniture?
I have to say, that’s kind of awesome and I’d totally podge the dickens out of a bedstand with romance covers—but not as a coffee table. All the cardstock edges would make the surface uneven, and what if there’s a glass of wine on the coffee table?
So, what crafty things have you seen done or wish you could do with books that you’re not going to read but have wonderful cover art?
