Pocket Spellbook part 2; cover and filling

Part one, handbounding the book, can be found here.

As I was looking for a glue stick, or my modpodge bottle and couldn't find either, the simplest cover solution came to my mind, and you'll LOVE how easy it is.

you need:
-electric tape (the color you want!)
-(not pictured) scissor
-sharpies or other felted pens. The thinnest the better
(I used a no.1 sized pigment ink, waterproof)
-a bit of water
-paint brush
-any other paper altering supplies

First you onroll your tape, cut with a little leftover and tape that leftover inside.

Cut a slice of tape and sandwich the first ribbons. Cut what exceeds. Repeat on the other side. Now your spellbook is covered, and it can be shut!

Toddler's help is totally optional

Stain your pages however you like (or don't, if you don't like the look)

Finally, add whatever you like inside!
