Book of Graces

Step 1

Find a book that you like the print and color of the pages. Maybe the color of the cover. Although you will just see the edges. Can keep it simple.  Just folded pages in half- toward each other. Started in the center and worked my way out to the edges. The pages form a rolodex of sorts-  ready for tucking in all sorts of things.

Step 2

Printthe words Book of Graces in a font you like.  You can use distress ink to age the paper. Then glue (Mod Podge, etc) to add it to the page.

Connie found these cool door knobs at Anthropologie which became her finishing touch. Just hot glued them in -wrapped paper around the bolt and slipped it into the space in the spine. Hobby Lobby carries great door knobs too.
