I was given some books recently that were falling apart. So, naturally, I decided to turn them into a crafting project!The pages these beads are made from were clean...just the covers were messed up or coming undone.In this listing, you will get 20 beads (or more if you select the option). They will be randomly selected and I will only interfere to make sure that you won't get a bunch of 'the' or 'and' beads.For a dollar more, you get the option of me coating the outside and sides of the beads in varnish to protect them and add a shine (see last photo).**If you don't want to receive words with swearing or possibly offensive words, please let me know. There aren't too many beads like that, but you never know :)Also, I will add the option to get blank beads, if you like this style. Blank beads will be of various sizes, just like the word beads.
