I recently had the pleasure of learning this fantastic repurposed book craft from one of my favorite Etsy sellers, Lisa Occhipinti of theshophouse. The very first one I made, a black book with black and white pages, currently hangs in my daughters room. She reads books morning til night, making it the perfect adornment to her book filled room.

I chose this book because I love the contrast of the black cover and illustrations with the antique white pages. The sketches are amazing, I've never seen anything like this.This book is smaller than the standard making it visually very interesting. I love the ocean, who doesn't! But there's so much more to this book, I just can't put my finger on it! Some book mobiles I just love more than others, and this is one of those. I will truly be sad to see it go.

These book mobiles have received quite a bit of attention both at local craft shows and on Etsy. I can't seem to keep up with the demand! Each item is one of a kind, you won't see another like it.

This particular book mobile measures approximately 7 inches x 8.5 inches and is 8.5 inches long, with approximately 4 feet of string (which can be adjusted).

Each book mobile is wrapped carefully and sent via USPS first class with insurance.

I welcome custom orders, please contact me for more information. Happy shopping!
