Their finished book is movie magic. Create your own charismatic tome of sinister spells step-by-step with their demonstration, or reference their video and craft it with your original design ideas.

Add a few small yet epic details to the book with craft wooden letters, a vintage book latch, vintage metal book corners, and 1″ twill tape.
