One day my Hubby and I were at DI (Thrift Store) in line checking out, and there was a stack of books on a table. I was browsing through and saw this old textbook that was old and crappy, the pages were tan colored, right away I thought I could make a spell book! This was back in the beginning of September so I've put it off. Now that its the middle of October I finally made time to do it, I love how it turned out!
- Old Book
- Black Ink Pad
- Glue Stick
- Sandpaper (not pictured)
There is no rhyme or reason to this project. I just tore the edges to my hearts content. Originally I wanted to burn the edges but my hubby gave me a big-fat-no on that one, he said he didn't trust me burning things inside of the house, after giving him the glare, I agreed that hes probably right. (Probably... but we will never know now will we?)
After tearing all the pages this is what I had on my floor....
After that, ink the pages... I just went with it. I totally killed my ink pad in the process :(
When I was done with that it still didn't look as roughed up and old as I wanted, so I grabbed some sandpaper and roughed it up a little.
I made the cover on photoshop and then printed it off at home. I just cut it out and glued it on.
Best part, this only cost me $2 to make!!
PS... Please notice how cute the spider is, my hubby didnt even notice it till I pointed it out. Its my favorite part!
