imageI love crafts that use pages out of books and fleur de lys and this project combines them both.  Covering an object with paper is very popular and very easy so this tutorial focuses more on how I prepared the pages.

 

Supplies:

Book

Stamp pad(s)

Stamps

School glue or Mod Podge

Tools:

Cutter or knife

Paint brush

Covering the Plate

All you need is the paper you’re going to use, glue or Mod Podge and a paintbrush.

  • Paint a small area of the plate with glue.
  • Put the first piece down and paint more glue on top of it.
  • Repeat this step, overlapping each piece of paper until you have finished covering the plate.

Yes, it is that simple!

 

Notes:

-Whether you use glue or mod podge is up to you.  This plate is for decorative purposes only.

-I went to the thrift store and bought an expensive plate.  It doesn’t matter what it looks like because you’re going to be covering it anyway.

– I covered the entire plate and then put the fleur-de-lis page on top so it stands out.

-For a richer look use two shades of the same colour ink, for example black and a gray.
