I had a project for the youth that I work with. We wanted to give the girls journal that they could write their own "Fairytale"in. I used my Bind- it all and these great covers. I used brown paint and put it lightly on the front and back and then used a clear crackle paint by Tim Holtz and once dry I inked over the cover with walnut distress ink and let dry. For the spine of the cover I used a tarnished brass crackle paint also by Tim Holtz and let that dry. I then used the same in over that and let dry. After everything was dry I Mod Podged a layer and then added the letter on the front and did another layer of Mod Podge.
For the inside pages I used copy paper and cut it down to 8x9. I then punched and bound 100 sheets for each book with 3/4 inch O-wire.
The girls loved them and I loved them because they turned out how I had envisioned them. While I was making them my 5 y/o daughter told me "Mom, those books sure do look old"! Yeah that was the whole point and I was so excited that she noticed!! Hope you all enjoy!
