Beautiful Altered Books!

Hello BoBunny fans, it's Amy here on Off the Page Wednesday!

Beautiful Family Memories Altered Books by Amy Voorthuis

This time I altered some old books with the amazing Heritage collection. I went to a secondhand shop real close to my house and I saw some amazing books that I had to have.

I was wanting to make this for a very long time but I could not find the right collection for this.

First I used a couple of sheets from the collection and put those on the cover of the books. Later I took my favorite washi tape out and used them to cover the back of the books which is super easy.

On the lower book I used the pretty piano sheet sadly I stuck everything on top of that....later I wondered why didn't I use it for the top one, but then it was to late.

I had such fun making this off the page project.

If you noticed I used a couple of different alphabets, they are so much fun on every kind of project you make because you have bold letters, small letters in all kind of sizes.

The BoBunny Lace are so adorable and if you can get your hands on them I advise you to buy them because they look great on everything. For my books I used them to keep the books closed.

Here you see the Pocket Squares on my top book underneath it you see the stickable stencils clock used with the licorice pearlescents.

I hope I inspired you to make a wonderful new OTP project to display in your wonderful homes.
This project I will give to my mom who loves reading books do you think she will like it?
