I have been seen the re purposed books all over blog land and have been dying to make some. I just wasn't sure how I wanted to do them. I thought about painting them or just leave them without a cover and then decorate. But then I went to Michaels and seen this wonderful pink flocked paper and in my favorite print damask. Of course I could not resist.
First I ripped off the covers of two books I had gotten at a thrift store. And then I traced and glued the paper onto the top book.
And then I put some tea dyed vintage lace I had and some ribbon and tied it around the books. And then I added some bling.
I thought it looked so pretty but I had a silk rose I thought I might add too.
I really love how this turned out. Now I will have to make some for my daughters in their colors. I'll show you updates as I get them done.
