I love giving books and journals as gifts. They are so useful and yet are pretty.

A simple way to make a book special is to add felt to it. This is a very easy and quick project, perfect to give to teachers on the first day of school!

Trim a piece of felt to be slightly larger than your book is when opened. Make sure to leave enough give for the book spine. Add a generous coat of Mod Podge onto the front of the book.

Adhere the felt onto the front of the book. Next add Mod Podge or any other strong adhesive onto the spine and back of the book. Adhere felt onto the rest of the book. Trim off the excess carefully using an Easy Action Micro Tip Scissors.

Now decorate the front of your book with an alphabet to represent the gift recipient’s name. Add flowers or any other embellishment for a quick and pretty gift.
