Mini Altered Books

      Hello Everyone, I'm here today to share some altered mini composition books I had bought awhile ago at my local Staples.  They were super cheap.  They came in a pack of 4 for a buck.  So, I thought I would alter these books with some canvas sheets I got at my Michaels.  I got some just to have on hand and I had this idea to cover these little books with them. (Inspired by Yolanda aka Yolibean)  I love how they turned out.  I also handmade some lace flowers to go with.  Stamped a dressform with my Lost Coast Design Stamps.  I covered the binding with some book binding paper I got from my local stamp store here in VA.  Then I added some lace and flat back pearls and Viola!  I also added a tiny paper bag as a pocket inside for a tag that you can buy at Michaels.  It fits perfectly inside. 

Have a Fabulous Friday!!  Enjoy your weekend.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.

Take Care, Friday

Ooh, your cards are very pretty! I like that dress form stamp :) Are those crocheted flowers? Love the cards. TFS :)

Thanks Divine, but these are mini books not cards. No they are just hand sewed flowers. LOL... I need to get different color crochet thread to make more flowers.

Your composition books are beautiful! Love the black laced one. Those are awesome stamps! We are going to a Marine beach party with my brother tomorrow! I'm so excited. The twins have never swam in the ocean so it should be interesting.

Thanks for sharing...
