Transform an old book into something new by cutting, folding, gluing and so on....
I made some similar books at Halloween from an old book and this time made one into a purse. I love how it came out! Only I have to wait until Oct to use it!!! I got the directions for the design from this blog
First I seperated the pages from the outside cover. I used an old atlas at first but the cover was glossy and I had a hard time getting my spider to stick, even with hot glue. I then picked out another book with a non glossy cover.
I glued the bookplate and spider down them made the web with my hot glue gun. Net I covered it with watered down glue and a thin napkin.
I then let it dry, then painted with black acrylic paint. When it dried I went over the spider with copper paing and the web with an champagne silver.
To make the inside check out this link. Instead of using the E600 glue I just used my hot glue gun. http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-purseclutch-from-a-Book/?ALLSTEPS
I covered the inside with black lining. I really like how it came out!
These are the two I made at Halloween.
