Making Floating Books

One of the first scenes in the Ghostbusters movie depicts a library haunted by a spirit, complete with flying card catalog cards and floating books.  We wanted to include that in this year’s house, and some friends helped to make that happen.

We started off with some books that were rescued before being thrown away.

Then, Michelle, Brian and Meredith, cut out the inner part of the pages of the books to make them light.

Next, Brian glued the edges of all the pages, as well as the covers, together and attached ‘invisible’ (very thin and clear) thread at the top.
