BiblioBags Custom Book Purse Giveaway!



This month marks the second anniversary of my Etsy shop, BiblioBags.  To celebrate, I'm giving away a free custom book purse!  


FREE CUSTOM PURSE FROM BIBLIOBAGS GIVEAWAY
 

An up to $85 value!
                                                                                          
How to enter:

1. Post what book you would want made into a custom book purse on BiblioBags’ Facebook Wall as many times as you like.

2. Post one comment on this blog.

I will choose a winner at random next Monday, May 21st and announce it on my Facebook wall and on my blog.




Rules:

1. All entrants must be 12 years or older.  However, I will make whatever book purse (within reason and the following rules) you like for whomever you like!  Say your 9 year old niece really wants one . . . you can enter the contest and I can make a book purse for her.  Make sense?

2. All materials including the book, fabric and handles must be within my set budget.  No $400 first edition books or diamond encrusted handles, okay?  I’ll let you know what is reasonable and what is not.

3. Please no books that include or promote pornography, hateful speech, symbols, etc.  Let’s keep it nice and clean, folks . . . especially on the cover!  Example: Your favorite book may be a historical text on WWII but if it has a swastika on the cover, I’m not comfortable making a purse out of it.  While we’re at it, no religious texts allowed either.  I don’t want to anger any dieties . . . my life is complicated enough.  I reserve the right to turn down a book if I find it offensive or inappropriate.  But relax.  I may be Mormon but I’m pretty laid back.  I just don’t want to put my name on something that is offensive or in excessively bad taste.  A little bad taste I’m okay with.  Wink, wink.

4. Your choice of book is subject to my review, meaning, if it’s too shabby to make into a purse, you’ll have to find another one.  I prefer hardcover/hardback books in good condition.  I will try to make your wildest book purse dreams come true but if it’s not possible, we’ll have to try something different.  So be patient with me!  (Because the best way to make someone patient is to throw an exclamation point at them . . . )

5. Please allow at least 5 weeks for me to complete your custom purse.  Sometimes I am backed up with several orders at a time, sometimes I have none at all.  It just depends on my work load at the moment.




Need ideas?  Go to my shop page and peruse my “sold” listings.  There’s a huge range of what can do and what I have done in the past. 


GOOD LUCK!

Ooh! Pick me! Pick me! I want one! :)
As I said on facebook, Northanger Abbey would make a great book purse.

Bibi said...

Oh... that's so cool :) I still want that purse about cinema, so any book called Histoire du cinéma, and there are many with that name :D, would work. ;)

And thanks for the giveaway!

I hope I get picked! This is so cool! I posted on Facebook, but I'd choose To Catch a Pirate.

It's too hard to pick just one!! I loved the last Jane Eyre one you did. I loved the butterfly one :) And the LOTR one. They're all awesome. (thou shalt not covet, she mutters to herself) I might choose a Rubaiyaat of Omar Khayaam.

Lovely! I'd enjoy a Jules Vernes book or maybe a book of poetry. Something with a neo-victorian feel.

Congrats on your second anniversary. All of your bags are awesome. I would trust your judgement. I tend to be an old book/Wizard of Oz/Wicked kind of gal.
