A while ago, even years, I received some counter top samples. I had them stored in my stash not totally sure what I would do with them. Today on went the light bulb! I would use them as a book covers. I had some paint sample chips that were the perfect width so I would just have to trim them to the right length and punch a hole in them. The counter top samples were a dull grey color so I added some alcohol inks and acrylic paint to make them a more pleasing color. I used ball chain that I also colored with alcohol ink to hold the book together. I added a few doodads to the cover and it's done.
