Introduction: Skyrim Destruction Spell Tome

In this instructable we will be making the a Destruction Spell Tome/Skill Book from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Step 1: Materials

To make this you will need:


  • 2 Sheets of Brown Craft Foam
  • Aluminium Paper
  • Old Book


  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Exacto Knife
  • Pen
  • Red paint
  • Silicon
  • Two Sided Tape (Optional)

Step 2: Making the "Destruction" Symbol

First Pint the symbol so that it fits the book you chose.

Then put the aluminium under the image and trace it with the pen applying a lot of pressure

Cut it with the exacto knife or the scissors

Lastly turn it around and paint the symbol leaving the elevated parts intact as shown in the picture

Step 3: Covering the Book

Start with the frontal cover and fold the edges in the side part must be covered with the first sheet of foam

Then cover the other side (don't cover the side with the second sheet)

  • You can use the two sided tape for the second Sheet of you can use silicon

Step 4: Putting It Together

Now that we have the two pieces done we need to put them together

Put the two sided tape/silicon on the back of the symbol and paste it onto the front of the book

  • Check that the flames are facing upwards

Step 5: Final Details

This step is optional but I think it gives the book a better feeling to it.

Grab a strand of silver like decorative string and paste it near the edges with the silicon

Finally cut a piece of craft foam about 1 inch thick, round of one the edges and paste it onto the back of the book so that it keeps the book closed (I used butterfly clips to paste it but silicon also works
