Stamped Book Set

6 Materials
30 Minutes

Hey all, these stamped books are taking Instagram by storm and I have been making them like crazy for gifts and decor. They are so simple and chic, so I decided to share a short tutorial with you.

Materials are super easy!! You will need a paint brush, twine, white paint, 3 books (hard back or soft) of the same size, letter stamps and some black ink!

Start by carefully removing the outer cover of all three books leaving the spine in tact.

Then paint the entire front and back of the exposed book. Don’t forget to paint the spine as well. And then allow all three books to dry very well.

Once they are all dry, stack them together and bind them with some twine. You can stamp them before you bind them or after. Stamping before is actually easier.

You can customize them to say whatever you would like! Stamping is the hard part so take your time with this step.

I styled it as desired! This makes a great gift and shower ideas! I hope you give it a try.

    Why remove the spines? Couldn’t they be painted and then stamped? It would retain more of a solid completed piece...

      You probably could do this but it is a little harder to get the acrylic paint to stick to the shiny outter cover. Removing the outter cover off the spines also gives it a little rougher more aged appearance. :)

    Why did you remove the covers?

    It would of made more sense to leave the covers on if you plan on gifting this.

      its totally up to you if u want to try to leave the covers on but it’s much quicker and easier to remove them. The paint sticks much better to the paper the the glossy covers :)
