Sculptured Pumpkin Book

I love recycling old unwanted books - I think the new trend word is 'upcycle'. Anyway somebody I know gave me lots of old unwanted novels and I know the charity shops are in undated with books so here's what I created with one of them. This is not my idea by the way - I saw this on Pinterest and is on one of my boards HERE
I hand carved it with a stanley knife..very carefully I might add. The stem is a piece of brown card rolled and secured. Added a wide ribbon and inked the edges with orange ink pad.
Such fun!
