This is a small altered art scrapbook I made for my Aunt Val for her birthday a few years ago.
Materials/medium: Small children’s board book (about 4″ x 6″), scrapbook paper, ribbon, pressed flowers, tiny seashells, photographs, scrapbook accessories, acrylic paint, beads.
The cover says,
If you were here
or I was there . . .”
Torn paper can add a cool edge.
Adding a pocket allows you to add photos or anything you’d like to include or for the recipient to add little keepsakes.
You can find scrapbook embellishments at discount and dollar stores in addition to regular craft stores.
