Back to school altered book cover

Hi everyone,

I hope that your school year is off to a great start. My kids are always looking for covers for their school books so for my project this month I decided to make an altered book cover.

I purchased a canvas banner page at my local scrapbook store.

I decided to fold the canvas in half. Then I took out my paints, and created my own stamp by first cutting an apple in half.
Then applying a coat of paint.

I did this on the inside of the canvas page too.

After the paint dried, I added some fun GCD papers from the Elementary My Dear collection by Heather Tozzi.

Here is a up close shot of the cover:
I also added a fun mini chalkboard that I found at Joann's, and I created my own fun little pocket to hold pencils in.

and a look at the inside:
This will make a fun cover for a small book or notes.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope this inspires you to create your own alerted book cover, and make your own stamp in the
process too!
