This was a wonderful project to do. I've been wanting to alter a book for a long time. I took a book and found some nice Shabby Chic scrapbook paper and covered it with it. I tattered the pages up on the sides for an old time look. Then I added lace for the side binding. Then I used a beautiful pendant I got at Michael's craft store for only $1.99! They had a huge jewelry clearance sale, and I found a lot of old time jewelry pieces. This is one I couldn't pass up. I love this project. I hope you do too.
