Book Page Four Leaf Clover Tutorial

I wanted to try something with book pages, as it is a quite popular medium at the moment.  After Valentine’s Day was done and over, and all of the chocolates had been eaten, I was left with several of these…
which gave me an idea for the next holiday, St. Patrick’s Day.
 Lucky for me, I have four boyz…

I hot glued them together and then sprayed them with some gold spray paint I already had.  I just wanted something to cover the bright colors of the chocolate boxes so they wouldn’t come through the book pages.

 
I grabbed a book for 25 cents at a local chuch thrift shop.  I tore out the pages and used Mod Podge in glossy finish.
I ripped them by hand and just mod podged them on.
I let them overlap the edges and let it all dry overnight.
I used an exacto knife and cleaned up the hearts.
I then used a bit of gold paint and a sponge brush and just lightly gilded the edges.
I then used a glitter light green paper and cut out letters with my Cricut.
  I used the Classic Font in 3″ size.  I then hand cut a stem.
Then it was just a matter of gluing everything down.  I attached a soda can tab to the back for a quick way to hang it.
I like how it came out…
It looks great against the rustic wood paneling in my foyer.

I’ll be linking up here:
