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!
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!
