Halloween Spell Book

Set a spooky mood with your own book of spells. Make a series of spooky books and stack them to create a haunted look. We decorated our Halloween Spell Book with a witch and spiders, but you can decorate yours to be as creepy or cutesy as you like.

Spell Book takes 1 to 1-1/2 hours to complete.

Designed by Cathie Filian and Steve Piacenza.

Step 1
Remove the paper book jacket (if any). Open the book and spray the edge of the book with water. Spread the pages so the book is half open. Allow to dry. Topcoat with a layer of Mod Podge® Antique Matte.

Step 2
Trim the scrapbook paper to fit the front of the book. Apply Mod Podge® Matte to the front of the book and the back of the trimmed paper and position the paper on the book. Top-coat with more Mod Podge® Matte, smooth any air bubbles with your finger and allow to dry.

Step 3
Trim a Halloween image from the paper, attach the image to neon cardstock using Mod Podge® Matte, allow to dry and trim around the image leaving a neon border. Attach the image to the front of the book using Mod Podge® Antique Matte.

Step 4
Hot glue rhinestones and embellishments to the book.
