Jack-O-Lantern Book

We're back in AZ!!!
It sure doesn't feel like fall here at all...sunny and warm and still in the 90"s!
I have spent the last couple of days housecleaning, and dusting and dusting and dusting...
and also adding a touch of a little bit of Halloween decor.
Halloween is one of my most favorite holidays.  I guess because it brings good childhood memories of the "good old days" when it was a fun safe holiday. 
When I first saw Diane's (An Extraordinary Daypumpkins made out of books, I knew I had to make one; that is after I could bring myself to destroy a book (even though I had no interest in reading) for this worthy craft.
The Jack-O-Lantern over the basement mantle is the first I made right before we left MN.  So...when we get back in May, our house there will still have a touch of fall.
One thing I learned while making these 2, was to make sure the book has between 200 to 250 pages.  Also (a must) have a glass filled with iced water just in case you burn yourself with the hot glue, like I did.
