Witches Potion Books

I purchased books from a second hand store.  Look for books that have a fabric covering to the outside.
Take sandpaper and sand off the lettering on the spine.

If you can't get it all off try
         -painting the spine like I did with the black one
         -using twine or ribbon to cover it (purple)

Get creative.  Call your books Potions, Brews, Curses, Spells, Poisons, etc.

Decorate using different methods.

-I put stickers on the purple book to spell out Curses.  With silver paint I stippled over the top, let the
 paint dry, removed the stickers.

-Use stamps

-Draw your lettering or design with a glue pen (can be found in scrap booking supplies) and sprinkle
 glitter over the top of the glue.

-Take a pair of scissors and scrape the cover so it looks like fingernails clawing the book
