    I recently purchased Noble Collection's Tom Riddle diary, and it's actually a pretty nice replica, but I decided to modify it into the destroyed version of the prop.

    The pages were watered down and acrylic ink was applied. Still have a lot of weathering to do on the cover and fine tune the colors, surface, etc. I'll update it with final pics eventually.

    Here are the finished pics of the diary. Also attached a pic of one of the diary props seen in the page to screen book.

    The Noble diary arrives looking really new looking, but I still think it's a decent value for the money. It's reasonably close to the prop, and even the font for Tom Marvolo Riddle tag on the back is basically the same as the one seen in the page to screen book, however there are versions of the prop without it, and with different leather variations. The metal corners look decent as well. I ended up sanding mine and then weathering them. The only thing that I still don't really like about the noble diary is the pronounced leather texture on the cover. The screen prop is generally more smooth or has more subtle textures. But overall not bad for 35 bucks

    Thanks for the comments!

    I don't have step by step photos, but I can do a write up here on how I did it and what I used, etc. I'll try to do that in a few days.

    I've wanted to do this to my noble diary since I got it but was always worried about * something up and making a $35 dollar mistake! You really nailed it and did an awesome job! would love to hear how you did it!
