Altering An Old Dictionary

Happy holidays everyone! I have a project that took two videos to make! I love making art journals and have made lots of them.  What makes this one different is that I use the old book paper for the inside of the journal.  In the first video, I make book cloth using lots of stencils and a few different sizes of Gel Press® Plates to create a colorful cover.  In the second video, see how the book cloth is attached to an old dictionary book and how I prepare the book to become an art journal.

Here are some other creative uses for book cloth:
  • Die-cut into flowers and layer to use as 3-D embellishments
  • Cover a lampshade
  • Sew into a brush or pencil holder
  • Cover a box 
  • Make a cloth journal
  • See more ideas on Pinterest HERE (I especially love the "quiet book" idea for children)
I would love to hear your ideas for using book cloth. Please leave a comment below.
