A book for the book enthusiast
My husband LOVES books! He can spend hours at a time reading. Because of his busy schedule he doesn't do that so much anymore, but he still finds time every day to read. For last year's birthday, I thought I'd make a book for him to record all the books he's read. He has a few loose sheets that he can't always find, so making this book journal was the best thing for him. All I did was buy a blank book and used scrap booking paper to decorate it. I did this on the front as well as the back cover. I found paper that had the words, "dream", "imagine" and "explore" and cut those out to place on the front cover. I titled the book, "books!" I used rub-on transfers to spell out those words onto a tag that had a metal border around it. I also used metal brads for a decorative touch. There you have it--a journal for the book lover!
