Vintage book makeover

I was over at My Desert Cottage signing up for her blog “Where I create” party (You need to sign up too if you haven’t already!) and I was going through her tutorials and found a very easy and fun tutorial to turn a vintage book into a Desk Organizer.

I had a vintage book that I actually picked up in Paris when I went for a girl trip at the flea market…

abbook 004                        It has a gorgeous leather-like cover and I knew it would be perfect for this!

                                       I began folding all the pages, one by one…

abbook 002

                                      And I scrounged through my images and papers to use and to

                                      create a nice vintage appearance to go along with the book…

abbook 007

                                               And before I knew it I was finished…


                                           A little more stamping on a vintage envelope to start off what it

                                                                      can hold now for me….

abbook 011

                                                                          LOVE it!
