Buzzfeed is killing me on the DIY tiny book necklace!! All the supplies are on Amazon but you could also hunt them down across your local toy/miniature/jewelry stores. You’re going to need a tiny book (think dollhouse), a spacer bar and mod podge. The hardest part will be sizing down a book cover down to your dollhouse book dimensions. Check out the link below for full instructions.
In case DIY scares you but you NEED a book necklace in your life defiantly start checking around Etsy because there are some amazing artists. I found the shop Tiddy Bits that will be receiving my next paycheck. https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/TiddyBits?ref=l2-shopheader-name
If you’re not into DIY jewelry have you thought about making your own book collection? Ever After Miniatures shop on Etsy has these amazing paper books available via pdf download. You would put together the books and the case! These pieces would also look amazing in shadow boxes or paired within a larger art exhibit. https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/EverAfterMiniatures?ref=l2-shopheader-name
If you want to create something directly for your book though look no further then to Martha Stewart’s amazing tutorials! (When I have a bad day at work it’s her site I go to unwind and rediscover the happy) She had some book plate templates that are necessary to my library. These would also make an amazing birthday/shower/Christmas presents. http://www.marthastewart.com/269870/homemade-bookplates She provides some beautiful downloadable templates and you can experiment with different papers colors. Just remember to use acid free glue when placing them in your books.
Of course the best part of crafting is experimenting and making it all your own! Don’t be scared and push yourself each time you create! Contact me via Twitter or Instagram with your results! @decidedlyread
