Made this Mini charms textbook for a swap.  Was really fun!



Put texture on it, then painted and black washed.  The center decoration is cut out from cereal box cardboard and covered with hot glue and paint is all! (uh oh, secret is out)  Then glued a big jewel in the center. 


Made pages around the edge with paper and paint.  Then it didn't feel quite done so made a special trip back to the store for book corners for the final touch. 


More cereal box pieces as sides


Started out as a plain old paper book box from Hobby Lobby!  I love seeing the texture difference.


And for fun I added a -charm- bracelet inside.




Tada!  Thanks for looking  Cheesy
