Actually, it is a really clever way to enhance the beauty of your library with another dreamy, well-lit miniature library. A library is your escape from reality, where your soul finds solace and peace.
Since you are a beginner, it is best to start with easy ones. The materials required won’t even cost you much. So, let’s learn how to make a library book nook!
So, you will need five pieces of cardboard, cut according to your preferred dimensions. You can use plywood pieces too. But it will only raise your budget.
Three of the cardboard pieces must be the same size for making the walls, and they need to be wider. The roof and floor pieces can be smaller and narrower.
Now you need to make book racks. Glue a single popsicle stick to the middle of one piece of cardboard vertically.
Next, stack up popsicle sticks parallel to each other throughout the cardboard piece and make rows. Using glue, attach all of these together. Let it dry and your framework will be ready.
Time to make books now. You can print the pictures of small miniature books on a piece of paper or card.
Or, you can just buy these postcards from stationery stores. And if you are a Potterhead, you know which books you want there!
Step Four After that, just cut these pictures into the shape of miniature books. Next, take a small piece of 0.5 cm thick cardboard. It is actually for simulating the pages or the bulk of the book. So try to buy an off-white colored cardboard piece.
Now, stick the cut pieces of book pictures on the cardboard one after another. Then, cut them out according to their shape using a pair of scissors.
Just fold these along the fold of the book. In this way, make as many books as you need and let them dry.
On the other walls (cardboard pieces), you can stick printed wallpapers cut according to the dimensions of the cardboard. You can add a picture frame on the left wall. Just cut small cardboard pieces and then attach them to the wall to make a photo frame. Inside this frame, stick a nice portrait.
Instead of the wallpapers, you can simply paint the walls with acrylic paint if you wish. It gives a nice outlook as well.
It is the crucial step. Most importantly, you have to assemble all the parts now. Using glue, attach the walls, the roof, and the floor.
Let the frame dry. Now, start putting the books in. Attach the books with glue. You can just put them haphazardly or arrange them neatly, however you like.
Make miniature chairs, lamps, stools, etc. You need a good battery-powered LED light for the lamp. Add little grasses or flower vases in front.
You can also make a small carpet using a cloth piece and place it in front of the chair. Besides, add some medieval writing on parchment paper to stick above the bookshelf. It will give an aesthetic look.
Now, let the entire thing dry for one day. There you go, your classic Victorian library book nook is ready!
