i actually found out how to do this from another blog: http://themarimakes.blogspot.com/2011/08/budget-anthropologie-well-defined.html
on this blog, she uses pages from a dictionary. i did things a little differently. my favorite book is pride and prejudice, so i took one of the many copies that i own and cut out my favorite passages and quotes from the story. if you want to do it this way, MAKE SURE you save your favorite pages for the last layer, so that you can read them!
