This is a project I have been working on for awhile now! I got the idea from a blog I love Altered Alchemy
. She makes beautiful necklaces and books that are so incredible I really wanted to try to make some myself! So this is my version and it's not nearly as ornate but I think they turned out really well for my first try! They are going to be Christmas presents for my sister ,daughter, niece, and a couple of ladies I work with. (I think it's safe to post this now) Well here is a breakdown of how I made these little books:
First I took an old scrapbook and tore the pages into 1.25" x 3.25" strips, folded a stack of four strips in half and sewed the spine with thread, and grouped four of these together. I used a clothespin to keep them in groups
This is the one I made for my sister Maria. I put some stained paper with some words on it under the key hole and added an old looking key to the chain. I also added some gold stamping around the edges and back after these pictures were taken.
This is the back of one of the ones for the ladies at work, you can just see the little tooth brush peeking down in the pic...yes I work at a dentist office! I just couldn't resist when I saw these little silver tooth brushes on Ebay!
