Paint the pages of your book cream. When you have finished dip your brush in a little bit of brown paint. Drag it (long ways) across the surface. It will make streaks that look like pages. If they get too dark just go over them the same way with the cream paint.
Paint the inside of your book box and cover. Let dry.
Paint the back and spine of your book. Let dry.
Draw some rock shapes on the grey foam and hill shapes on the green foam. Cut them out.
Cut out a long rectangle for the spine of your book. Print out or hand letter your books title on your brown paper. Tear the edges for a rough shape. Use some watered down brown paint on the ripped edges for an aged pirate map look.
Use your pencil to draw out where you want the sky, large green hills, sand & water to be. Fill them in with your paint and let dry.
Print out or write with the sharpie your books title on the brown paper. Tear the edges so they are rough. Use some watered down brown paint on the torn edges so it looks like an old pirate map.
Glue your paper book spine and book title on to your book.
Glue your foam hills and rocks on to the cover.
Snip the backs off the buttons and glue them to the cover and spine of your book.
