Personalized Stamped Books


One of my new favorite things to make are these personalized stamped book sets! These are easy to make and fit so well with the Farmhouse vibe I love. I have made several sets for myself and also for family! There are several ways to make these, using hard bound books and painting the covers & binding, removing the binding & covers and then painting, or probably my favorite: removing the binding and covers and leaving the natural pages showing. The natural way tends to lean a little more towards the vintage/rustic vibe.

To make, simply pick the look you are going for, stamp your desired words and finish off with some twine and/or ribbon and greenery. I like to make the letters a little off, I am a fan of the perfectly imperfect look they have. Using old books means you will have some definite character to the sides and also to the binding, just make sure your binding isn’t dented in, it makes it difficult to stamp even if you remove the cover.

Mine and my husband’s names and wedding anniversary, I love the light and dark of the ink and imperfectness of this, it adds to the vintage/rustic feel.
This stack is painted, I painted all of the book, but you could just do the area to be stamped. I didn’t sand away the glue from the cover, I think it adds character. This set is going to my mom and dad, all their grandkids names.

The options are endless for what you can make and they make awesome personalized gifts! A custom stack with name, date of birth and weight is a perfect gift to welcome a new baby. Add bride’s name, groom’s name and wedding date for a wonderful wedding or anniversary gift. A stack of children or grandkids names for a meaningful Mother’s Day gift. A simple quote for a friend’s birthday or just to put a smile on their face.

As you can see I also made some with some Christmas cheer. You can have a set for each of the holidays. Have fun with it and be creative! If you don’t have the time or just aren’t a lover of crafting yourself, you can head on over to my Etsy shop to personalize your own stack of custom stamped books handmade by me!
