I love taking old books and recovering them. I have added the video below for full instructions. So grab a book and start creating beautiful decor!

Supply List

Yard sales in the summer are a great way to pick up old books, or even your local thrift store.

You will need a napkin, this one was from the February Decoupage Club.

I tore a page from the book and decoupage it to the cover with Liquid Patina.

Before adding the napkin I aged the book first using Dark and Decrepit

While I was waiting for that to dry, I cut out the flower from the napkin. I teach  tips and trick like fussy cutting in the Decoupage Club you can find out more about the club here.

I decoupage the flower napkin to the book and added some lace to the binding.

I finished it off by adding a shabby bow using material and the Retro Pink Lace. I made the cameo previously using resin and the Camera Mould.

I added some Gold Wax around the book and even on the material

I hope this inspires you to create every day!
