It's almost time to get out the Halloween decorations. I don't do spooky Halloween decor, just cute, so a potion book is a little edgy for me . . . ha ha ha. I might add some little potion bottles from Hobby Lobby filled with colored water this year. :)
I got an old book from a thrift store that already had a black cover so I wouldn't have to do anything to the cover. This book stays open permanently. (You can't close it) I spent a lot of time crinkling every page and ripping pages out occasionally so the book would lay flat. I put a little glue on some of the pages where it wanted to open so that the 'original plain white' pages wouldn't show. Then, I glued the potion recipes on the 2 top pages. I curled the edges around a pencil, then sprayed the edges of the pages and the front with a Walnut spray. I downloaded the open pages online, but I have searched and can't find the ones I used. There are a lot out there to choose from.
I glued a piece of black crinkled ribbon inside the spine of the book and propped it up on a stand.
Have a happy day!
