ALTERED BOOK


     This is my 'Altered Book'.  I designed it to be used as a coffee table centerpiece.  Fairies in a garden setting is my theme.  It measures 6" tall x 8.5" wide and 11.5" long.  


                                     I started with an old book from the local Thrift store.


                                       

     The page folding technique came from a video by  'Owlhouse Designs'.  You can find that HERE.  I burnished the folded pages with 'Gathered Twigs' Distressed Ink by Tim Holtz.



     My next step was to make a bow out of 2" ribbon and hot glue it to pages.  Also attaching a plastic butterfly from my stash.



      Close up of right hand corner of book.  Paper stepping stones lead up to this 3" plastic door surrounded by tufts of small plants.  The plants are made using 'Tiny Tattered Florals' die by Tim Holtz.


              Side view.  Fairies are fancy cut from 'Enchanted Forest' papers by Graphic 45 Designs.



      Close up of flowers.  I used 'Tattered Florals' die by Tim Holtz for the large 2" roses.  The smaller roses are made with EK's five petaled 1" punch.


       I love to share how I make my projects and see what others are doing as well.  So please leave me a comment.   Thanks for stopping by...
