Whimsical hearts...
There was a library cart of unwanted books at school and I took a few of the same series (Representative American Speeches). I wanted to try folding hearts and came up with a plan for the folds. After finishing, I colored in the hearts (the sides of the pages) with variations of purple, pink, and red. The top and bottom of the book looked pretty too so I colored them in (one looked like trees, and another looked like a snowflake). I enjoyed making this so I made another one that started where the last heart left off in the pattern (hard to explain..) so that the books look connected.

I guess that's fair. And I don't see why that answer should offend me.
I still could never do it... I would literally be consumed by a ridiculous sort of guilt (or OCD, I'm not sure...) I can't even fold down the corner of a page to mark my place, and don't lend my books out because so many people do. I also have an aversion to cracking and creasing spines...

I'm sorry this is a terrible thing to say, but that's a horrible thing to do to a book!
I'm sorry!

Hello! I understand where you're coming from so I don't blame you or anything. I did feel a bit guilty as I folded the pages. However, it is also important to note that I didn't damage any of the pages; they're all intact and just the edges are colored on. I can still read the book; I just have to unfold as I go along. For some, it seems sadistic that I enjoyed doing this to the book, but for me, it's a win-win-situation: I have fun making something that is decorative and still functional at the same time.
