Spook-tac-u-lar Day 18: Witch Book Decoration

Welcome back to day 18 of the 31 days of Spook-tac-u-lar Crafts.  Be sure to stop by and see what Rhonda has to share with you at http://www.scraphappenswithrhonda/ after you are finished visiting me here. :)

For today, I made a Witch Book to share with you.  If you remember last year I made the pumpkin, Frankenstein and monster books.  This is the new addition to add with them.  You can view last year's books here: http://jeanscraftycorner.blogspot.com/2010/10/day-4-of-halloween-crafts-paperback.html if you would like to see them.

I started out with a book that I bought from the junk store and hot glued the front and back cover together.  Then, I folded the pages in half for the entire book so it would form the circular shape I needed.  Once the book was completely folded, I used green paint to cover the edges.
Now, I took green foil shreds and to make hair for the witch.  I hot glued them to the top and sides.  I got the small witch hat from Hobby Lobby and hot glued it to the top of the book.
For the nose, a piece of plain white paper was crushed up to look like a nose and then I painted it green.  I also added a flat back black pearl to the nose also. 
Finally, I hot glued two google eyes to the face, hot glued the nose and cut a mouth from the Pumpkin Carvings Cricut Cartridge and hot glued it to the front also.
I am entering this into the following challenge:
