These are so cute to repurpose a vintage book. The time can be set to be different numbers to use as table numbers for an event or wedding. So fun!

Step 1: Buy a vintage book.
Step 2: Now trace the outline of a circle onto the center of the front cover as a reference guide for where your numbers will be. Do this with a pencil so you can erase the marks afterwards. To create a perfect circle use a cup or bowl that matches the size circle you need.

Step 3: Mark with a pencil where you want the numbers to be. Use the dabber to evenly distribute ink onto the number stamps you bought, and very carefully stamp them onto the book cover.
Step 4: Once the numbers are dry, erase the pencil markings from the cover.

Step 5: For an extra cute factor, use the same color ink and stamp the words I do onto either the back cover or the front page. Another option is stamping the groom and brides names or last name. If you dont want to use words, get a pretty wildflower stamp or something of your preference to decorate the back cover. There is freedom in this project to personalize the book however you like.
