It's a Prima-Style White Wedding: Altered Book Bundle

This week on the Prima blog, it's all about all white, wedding-themed projects! And today I have an altered book bundle that I created as a wedding table piece featuring all white Prima products. It's been quite a while since I've done a monochromatic project, so this one was very fun for me! And Prima has such a great variety of white products to choose from, so creating was a breeze :)

"Altered Book Bundle"
A really fun way to recycle any old book is to create an altered book bundle. I especially love really old hardcover books for this project, but any type of paperback will work too. Simply tear off the front and back covers, including the spine. You can use one or several books in your bundle. Paint the entire surface with a few coats of white paint or gesso. This will seal shut most of the pages; glue can be used to close up any gaps after painting. Use your favorite Prima trims to tie the books together (you might also want to apply some glue between the books to make sure they are secure), then add flowers, embellishments, and bling! 

Prima Products Used:
573478- Resin Angels
573157- Cartographer SIIC
570378- SIIC
567248 - Chantelle- Heirloom
573300- Resin in a Wood Box- Clock
573393- Trim
572068- Wire Thread- Stark White
571283- Nieve- Rose Flower

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Be sure to check out the Prima blog all week long for more wedding inspiration :)
