Book of Mormon - Optimus Prime style

I found this website the other day and saw this CUTE tutorial on how to cover a paperback Book of Mormon. I decided to do one for Xavier since he has been a tad jealous of Damon's fancy scripture set.

We couldn't do the cute flower one that is featured in the tutorial so we did a "boy" version with Optimus Prime instead. Luckily, I had everything we needed for the project so it didn't cost us a thing. For the cover, I used Google Images and had Xavier pick out what picture of Optimus Prime he wanted. I had downloaded a font that was similar to the Transformers font for the title.

Xavier also asked me to make him a bookmark too, everyone else in the family has scriptures with the ribbon marker and he really wanted one as well. Before I glued the cover to the front, I glued a ribbon down the middle of the spine to be used as a marker. I think that is actually his favorite part.
Its a simple little project but really fun to do. If you want one, you can probably talk me into making one for you too...I'll even let you request your cartoon character.
