Appointment/Address Bookcover - dress up a utilitarian appointment/address book.
This project is a monogrammed appointment/address book cover.
This project uses letter from Arabesque Set 2.
This month's project makes an idea gift, or you can use it yourself to dress up a utilitarian appointment/address book, as we have done. The same concept and basic instructions can easily be adapted to cover a bible or prayerbook, telephone book, etc.
