Altered Items

Treat box altered from a Prima flower plastic box

Side view of box with chocolates inside

Recipe Book altered from a mini brag book

Perfect pearls painted onto the flowers

Recipe cards to match

I made these for my sister-in-law's birthday and also for My Scrapbook Nook Advertising design class and Your Scrapbook Stash contest. I was intending to give her just the recipe book but decided to alter a prima flower box to match and put choccies in it.

The paper is Crate Paper Restoration. I love this range, so pretty and vintage.
The recipe book started out as a mini album. These are perfect because once you have written your recipes on the cards and put them in the plastic sleeves the recipes are protected while you are cooking. No spills or oil splatters on your recipes.

I did lots of distressing, inking and sanding on these. Even the recipe cards are slightly inked around the edges.

Thanks for looking and have a fabulous day.
For those in W.A. enjoy the public holiday.
