Last week when I did the post on Poison Apples (see here), I promised a pdf for you to create the Witches Spell Book.
Begin by finding a book that’s about the size of your paper. This one was perfect because it was really old and had the perfect color I was going for.
To age the pages you can always use a little coffee or tea to rub on the pages to darker or even an ink pad. But use a very lite touch. It doesn’t take much to get the aged look.
After you print out the pages, you’ll want to tweek them the size of the book. I used glue dots under the pages to lift them a bit and tuck them into the binding of the book.
I also rolled up the edges of pages to give it that much used look. And finally you can add a ribbon or cord to mark the pages with. My book all ready had the cord and I added a piece of ribbon for color. I tried it both ways and couldn’t decide which I liked better.
When I finished, I loved the way it turned out and made a little vignette on my kitchen counter. I think it would be a perfect touch to a Halloween party too!
