Toni's Mid Month Tutorial



The Book of Love by Toni

Hi everyone... it's my turn  to share a fun and easy tutorial on how to alter a book into a frame to showcase a photo of someone special. This is going to be a Christmas present for my mother as this photo is of her grandparents.... hence my great-grandparents. 
This is a lengthy tutorial with lots of photos so for your convenience I have created a SNAPGUIDE tutorial to explain the process. But first let me share a few up-close photos with you. 
This is the view of the top of the pages... nice and vintage looking. 
This is a bookmark I created to place in the middle of the pages and the heart fits nicely in it's niche with beautiful texture and cracks.  
The addition of the little roses just added that bit of whimsy needed to complete the project. Hope you enjoyed the photos, now grab yourself a cup of coffee and sit back and enjoy the tutorial.
