Easter week makes me think about all the blessings in my life and I thought this project would be a great one for this time of year! I created this as a favor for a dear friend for a church retreat craft project. It's super easy and would make a great gift for your Sunday school teacher or a friend.
1. Download and save the file to your computer. Print the cover image onto matte photo paper or presentation paper using your printers photo quality settings for the best results. Besides the photo paper, youll need a composition book (I purchased mine at Wal Mart), glue/adhesive, paper trimmer and/or craft knife, ribbon and acrylic gems for embellishing the circle around the title.
2. Trim out the image (it may be slightly larger than the surface of the book cover) and affix to the cover. Trim around edges with craft knife.
3. Embellish the book as desired...I simply added a ribbon to the seam where the black binding and cover meet as well as covered each dot around the title artwork with an acrylic gem. I used Ranger's Glossy Accents
for gluing the gems on.
Use HOT GLUE to make your ribbon STAY PUT. You could also cover the inside covers and back cover with matching scrapbook paper or cardstock to create a fabulous finished project!
Hope you enjoy this quick printable project!
