I started with purchasing three different sized hardback books at a thrift store for a dollar a book. I also managed to find the perfect assortment of fabric (pillowcases and a runner) for my idea at two to three dollars. That was all I needed!
I first took the paper covering off the books and used a razor to cut the fabric to size for the three books with the three different fabric designs. Then out came the Mod Podge and sponge brush. I started by covering one side at a time of the books cover in Podge and glued the fabric on. Once both sides were finished I opened the book and Podged the hangover fabric down to the inside of the book cover. The final touch was brushing a finishing seal of Podge all over the fabric to help the fabric not move and give it a stiffer texture.
Once all three books were dried I stacked them up and tied them with a piece of brown twine. I plan on each table having three books each with an assortment of fabric designs along with the flower arrangement and vintage picture frame with a photo of my fiancé and I.
I apologize I didn't get a picture with the twine wrapped around but you could imagine.
