Create: A Skull Book

I've known how to bind books for a while now, thanks to my very first Ames workshop.  Lately, I've taken my skills into re-binding old books with new paper.  This week, I found yet another great way to upcycle my scratch paper and old books - covering them with cloth!

I know, it doesn't sound like such a new thing, but I'm quite happy to have learned about it. 

I followed the Urban Threads tutorial found on StitchPunkand stuck my glue covered book under a box of dishes overnight.  I'll be adding new end papers tonight. 

For making something so fancy, it's pretty simple to do.  All it takes is glue, fabric, and something to cover.

Have a great weekend!
