Vintage Newspaper Covered Books....❥

It was time to change up the fabric covered books on my shelf display.
I had a red theme going on, and it's been like that since 2016!
That's such a LONG TIME!
How did I miss changing this before now?
So for the 2019 book makeover, I decided on a neutral black and white.

I'll be removing the fabric to recover them in the vintage paper.


This is why I used sellotape in the original fabric covering. 
So I could easily take it off and reuse the books.


You can read the original post about the red themed fabric covered books HERE.
Years ago I found a very old newspaper and it's been in my cupboard 'might make something with you' stash since.
The newspaper is from 1946, so it is extremely fragile.

That's why I opted for photocopying the pages so I could still use the interesting font and vintage images for the book covering project.
Also, I wanted black and white not the worn yellow aged paper as it was.

Do you remember covering your schoolbooks?

Well that's the same technique I used.  
Held in place by sellotape.

My black and white themed collectables now look fabulous!
