While I didn't have time to hit the second hand store, I did do a quick drive by the dollar store and purchased a book with a fun edge. Thank you SpongeBob and Patrick!
I sanded down the edges and added a fresh coat of white acrylic. I didn't bother to paint the whole book because I knew I would be covering most of it with paper.
I chose a fun vintage Christmas paper pack (I'll add the link later) to decorate the book. The paper pack had a lot of fun tags/embellishments to use, so it helped me keep things nice and flat (allowing the book to stay closed).
