I have wanted to make these since last Halloween. Finally did them! One thing to check off my list of hundreds. Originally I was just going to cover some books with scrapbook or wrapping paper, but then I saw this idea at goody goody gum drops. I think she painted those books. I had two old books I was going to use to make altered books, but never did, so I figured I could just paint those. I just used some black acrylic paint, stamps, and silver ink. I need to check out some thrift stores for some more old books to add to my Halloween collection.
