This is a really quick, easy and cheap project that even the kids can do… a halloween spell book

Step 1
Google “Printable Haloween Spellbook” and there will be a ton of different pages you can pick and choose from.

Print out your favourites on the biggest A4 setting you can (try fill the A4)
You will need 2 sheets of A4 printed as 1 sheet is not enough to cover the book completely.
Trim off any white edges
Use fancy washi tapes that suit your design to tape the pages together.


Step 2
Either buy notebooks (I used 192 page hardcover) or use an old readers digest book (perfect size)
I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Vintage photo and black soot to “age” the edges of the book pages



Step 3
Use 4 strips of double sided tape (2 back, 2 front)
Position your page and tape down
If like me your paper is slightly too small for the book and you have red binding sticking out – just use a black marker and colour over the red.

Step 4
I had a rather large piece of paper at the back of the book and so I folded it at an angel and added double sided tape to the bottom to create a pocket

I used washi tape to seal down the side of the pocket and add a little decoration, if you want it plain – just use double sided tape


Step 5
I used the Celebr8 coffee spills stencil and Tim Holtz distress ink - vintage photo and added coffee spills to my front cover
The book is now just about finished. But I needed to do more…


Step 6
I googled “steampunk halloween bookmarks free printables” and printed off all the ones I liked in various sizes



Step 7
I used my Tim Holtz mini attacher to attach the ribbons to the bookmarks – those tiny staples are just the greatest fun to use!

Step 8
Add the extra’s to your notebook and enjoy!

interesting will surely give it a try and use as a journal , going to add 2/3 small glass bottles with an eyelet and chain, a wire tied feather and a brown ribbon to the front or spine for added interest [fill with dried parsley . small pieces of cinnamon or bark , etc ?]
