Everyone loves a handmade gift, but it doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg to make OR take all day! Our DIY Deconstructed Stamped Books are quick and easy to put together AND make a perfect gift for any occasion!
We’re always looking for affordable gifts for our friends, neighbors, or kids school teachers.

And, we have 19 other creatives sharing their own DIY Christmas gifts so be sure to check them out at the end of the post. 🙂
DIY Deconstructed Stamped Books
Whether you’re giving these deconstructed stamped books to a teacher, a book nerd, your mom, neighbor, boss, or friend, there is a phrase you can stamp for any personality! Favorite children’s literature titles for a teacher, a book nerd would love their favorite quote, your mom would adore her children’s names, etc.
supplies to make Deconstructed Stamped Books
Gather a few supplies to make these deconstructed stamped books and these come together in less than an hour!
- Old Books (thrifted or laying around the house)

- White Acrylic Paint + Foam Brush (optional)
How to make Deconstructed Stamped Books
- Gently remove your spine from the book. It comes off easily.
- If it’s too trashed underneath or leaves a yellow glue, lightly paint white to create cohesiveness between multiple book.
- Allow to dry fully.
- Stamp in black ink your own words.

How to style Deconstructed Stamped Books
You can style in sets of 2-4, depending on the phrase you like or the height you want for your table decor. They’re cute as a table top accessory or on a shelf standing alone. We like to pop them in between pumpkins in the fall, with trees and candles during the holidays or to create height year round with blank books. However you style them, they’re sure to make a statement for the lucky recipient!
