“I’ve Put a Spell on You, And Now You’re Mine”
This is a book I intended to include in the third apothecary tutorial “Books, Coffins and Cauldrons”.
The cover and spine of this book is constructed the same as all of the other books in the tutorial. The covers of this book are 4 ½” x 3”. The size will fit in the apothecary I demonstrated in the tutorial.
The difference is in the inside where there is a box made from chipboard. All I did was cut four pieces of chipboard (2 long pieces and two short pieces) so that when glued to each other they would create a frame slightly smaller than the book cover. The depth of the frame is up to you. My frame is 5/8” deep. You don’t need a back as the back book cover gives you the back. I would recommend that make your frame first before assembling your book so that you make sure the spine of the book is big enough to accommodate the frame and you can close your book.
The frame creates a great niche for dimensional embellishments. I draped spider webbing that I purchased at the craft store around the front of the frame.
