You need to fold the covers of the book first and hot glue them together. This will help it keep its shape while you are folding the book. After the covers are glued together, you will start folding the pages inward and do this until your book is completely folded. It takes a little while to fold the pages down, but this is something you can do while watching tv, etc.
For Frankenstein, I layed a black sheet of cardstock underneath the book and traced around it. I then cut a circle out about an inch larger than the one I traced and hand cut it jagged to make the hair. I then hot glued this to the top of the book and pressed down the edges and glued them as well. I then also hand cut the bolts from a pattern that I made. I used the Happy Hauntings cart to make the mouth and cut the stitches out. I inked the stitches with the Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink. I then hot glued all of these items and two google eyes to finish him off.
