I wanted to try some mixed media altered craft. These are my first 3 books that I have altered. I purchased some patterns from etsy and started folding.
Taking it one step further I wanted to decorate the book as well. I covered the books in paper from my stash.
I stamped the inside covers of the book with words and images. I re-stamped the butterfly’s on the same paper heat embossed them and cut them out. I shaped them and glued them over the butterfly image that I stamped on the cover.
I made some flowers in the same paper and distress the edges. I added ribbon and the flower to the book. I am working on some more at the moment and will post again when they are finished.
These will be available to buy, but only in our shop as I don’t think posting them would be a good idea.
