I had an idea to create a picture frame with an old book and have been holding on to a special photo to do something special with, I finally put 2+2 together and got busy.
I used my trusty Exacto knife to cut an opening in the cover of my vintage WWII book, then cut some pages to create a mat for the photo. I slid the photo in, taped it down with some washi tape and then used miracle tape from VLVS! to adhere the front and back cover down. I used Mod Podge to seal up the pages all around so the book is permanently shut.
Aren't those DIY printers blocks perfect!
