I love old books!
Sometimes I bring them home even though
the books are pretty damaged.
Maybe the cover is good but the pages are bad-
or the pages are good and the cover is bad!
My husband knows that sometimes I just like the title!
He found this book and he know I would love the title-
but the book had a lot of water damage but the cover was okay.
Perfect for this project.
I wanted to turn my book into a keepsake box.
I also wanted the box to still look like a book.
To make the box frame, I measured along the edges of
back cover. I used 1'' wide wood strips, some were old paint stir sticks.
You could use scraps of molding.
Careful not to cut through to the cover.
I glued the framed pieces together.
Then covered the inside cover and frame with paper.
