How to make: A book page brooch

A cute little book page brooch like this gives a literary edge to any outfit - and is really easy to make.



You will need: An old book page, thick card, varnish, craft glue, a brooch pin, superglue.


Step one:



Draw a circle around something the right size onto a piece of thick card and the book page - I used a corkscrew! Cut out carefully.


Step two:



Using the craft glue, stick the circles together. Make sure the glue goes right to the edge, but that it is not too wet or it will show through. Wipe away any excess before sticking together. Leave to dry.


Step three:


Once the glue has dried, apply several layers of varnish to both sides and the edge. You will need to do this over a period of time, allowing each layer to set.


Step four:



Once the varnish is dry, carefully glue a brooch pin to the back with the superglue. And voila! As easy as that!
