An Altered Book

I got this book yesterday in one of my favourite shops (Home Bargains) for 39p - its a great one to alter because it's really thick so you can get something substantial in the void you make in the middle. The tealights are scented and cost £2 for 24. I thought it made a really pretty but inexpensive little gift.
