Hi everyone! Sorry my blog was messed up for so long..... I had been viewing it on my Ipad the last few months and things looked normal on there! I got it all fixed up and ready for action! I want to share with you something I saw on a DIY show. It is an altered book mail holder! I KNEW there must be a way to store your letters and receipts in a way that looks good!
I started with a hard cover book about the size of a paperback novel. The other items needed are pattern paper, tissue tape and Mod Podge or Matte Medium and a brush.
The first thing you need to do is fold each individual page in half, tucking tightly into center seam of the book, use your fingers or a bone folder to make a sharp crease.
Using your tissue tape, cover the spine of the book, and all the other edges.
Now take your pre-cut pattern paper [mine was approx 4 x 6 inches] adhere the paper to the inside and outside cover. I wanted the tissue tape exposed so this is how I did it, but use your imagination and do what you like. Easy Peasy!
p.s. I added 2 coats of Matte Medium over top of the paper and the tissue tape!
