This library gift DIY is perfect for anyone who loves books and reading! This is a sponsored post.

I have always loved libraries and books. My parents would drop me off at the library on base while they went grocery shopping, and I happily leafed through the card catalogs looking for new and interesting things to read. When I saw the new library card die set from Maker’s Movement I HAD to have it.

I used my library card set die with fabric and it cut beautifully! The library pocket and card were perfect for holding this sweet little book page pendant that I made.

Library Gift DIY: Book Pendant and Holder

I used my Crossover II die cutting machine to cut the pocket out of scrap canvas fabric.

I cut the small tag from canvas, too. The library card was cut from patterned card stock.

I did a blanket stitch to close the two sides of the library pocket. First I pinned the edges, then I stitched them. See this tutorial for more details on the blanket stitch.

I sprayed the canvas with a variety of inks in shades of brown, yellow, and gold to distress it.

For the pendant, I traced the scrabble tile on the text of an old water damaged book that I repurposed for crafts. I added a flower transfer over the text.

Use Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the tile, and seal it with Mod Podge.

Dimensional Magic gives the tile a professional, glossy finish.

Finish up the pendant with a bail. Add eyelets to the library card so you can tie the pendant to the card. Embellish the library pocket card with vintage findings.
