Modge Podge never gets old

One of my little family's new years resolutions is to read our Book of Mormon more regularly as a family.  I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and we are counselled to read this book daily. I love it and it is something that I am very passionate about. I wasn't sure how to get my kids equally as excited. So for family night a couple of weeks ago we talked to our kids about our beliefs and about how the Book of Mormon came to us. Before hand I had hidden these books and at the end the kids had to go on a hunt to find their books. I thought they would like them, but I HAD no idea how much they would love them. Even my little three year old just lugs his around and has to show everyone. They now see this book by their bed every night and beg us to read to them. Not sure how long this will last but I am gonna love it while it does. 

I had seen these done for a girl's camp craft with little mini book of Mormons but I wanted the kids to have big sized ones and hard cover ones. For Max's I just modge podged scrapbook paper on and hot glued the red ric rack in for a book mark. Then I just printed off the label on my computer and inked the edges with an ink pad. For Madi's I actually painted the book!! yikes I hope that is ok. But I painted it and then modge podged some paper on and used stickers and ribbons to embellish. And I love them I love that they are personalized for my kids and that they are special for them. This can totally be done with any kind of book. Anything that you want to personalize, think their favorite stories, a song book, a journal, a drawing book, ANYTHING.

I just found your blog today...didn't realize you were LDS until I clicked to see the BOY stuff, I'm excited to find another Mormon Mama on Blogger! I put your button on my site. I'm going to Utah in a few weeks (dropping off our Missionary son!) I think I'll pick up a couple of those cheaper version Books of Mormon and do this! Totally cute! My 15yo dd did this covering technique on journals. Uber cool! Glad I found you! ;) Love your blog!
