Faux book tutorial

 This is the finished book. 
 You will need 2 7x7in pieces or chip board or card or your choice
and 4 A4 pieces of decorative paper 1 7x5in  thick piece of card   
this needs to bend over a rolling pin. and a piece of decorative paper 
for the 7x5 card. 

 I used a tin from some letters I had I decorated my with sewing stuff
Cut the 2 A4 8x8 just so you have a small edge all round
Fold the edging up then use wet glue to stick all down
do this to both bits, 
 Then cut the other 2 bits to fit over the inside then stick these down,

 this is what they look like. 
 Then  bend the thick card over a rolling pin until its the shape you want
this will depend on the tin or what you put on the main page.
Using hot glue add the tin to the side you want after decorating 
Both sides and fully dry.

 Now add the spine with hot glue when its dry add other
side. on the out side covers and add decorative paper before or after
if you want to use leather fabric ect .
 I used paper and lace for my spine I also used watches 
pic for other side.You need it flat so its easy to close,
I then added seam binding for closer.

I hope this is ok if you have any questions please ask.
Thank you all for stopping by.
