Love books

This week's theme at CraftBarn is to alter a book.On my old book, I made a niche, a mini drawer and it is dedicated to the book lovers.
Il tema di questa settimana su CraftBarn è alterare un libro. Nel mio ho ricavato una nicchia, un piccolo cassetto, ed e' dedicato a tutti gli amanti dei libri.
Qui il PDF da scaricare con il passo passo.
Here you can download the PDF instructions.
The mini drawer hides a mini mini hand made book made with the leftovers.
Il mini cassetto contiene un mini mini libro fatto con gli avanzi delle pagine tagliate per creare la nicchia.
The heart is made rolling the book pages from the niche ( nothing is wasted).
Il cuore è fatto con le pagine ritagliate dalla nicchia (niente si butta!)

Gorgeous and fun project! The little book is so cute...
2 questions: Do you have to glue every single page to each other or just the outside and what did you use for the small book cover?
