Really?! I just go to every book sale I can and search for the cards. Also, friends have given them to me. What are your methods? :)

There was a college library near my college that had lots of books with library cards that I knew they didn't use anymore. So I would pick out titles that appealed to me and stick the cards in the pages of the books I was checking out. I probably have 50 or so. I haven't acquired any new ones recently though.

I used a few in a book I made, as well as some book cloth I found in my school's library. Here are links to a few photos if you are interested. I thought the title on this card was great [some must watch while some must sleep], it was from hamlet i guess.

The first page is actually the library card in a pocket, but unfortunately I don't seem to have a photo uploaded that shows that.

I love your jar of hearts! I have a weakness for Ball / Kerr / Mason jars and I think it's another terrific use for them; thanks!
