Alter Art, Altered Doorhanger, Makeovers, Recyling, Reuse, Reduce., Trash to Treasure

Fairy Doorhanger.

This is the second creation in the Altered art series this week. Ideal for the little princess’ room.  Everything bright and cutie to make her smile and ofcourse, that fairy is just so adorable. It is a digi stamp ofcourse. I’m glad I got to use up those bits and pieces of ribbon lying around. The round punch has been used to create the circle in the cardstock.

Ribbons in shades of pinks, greens and yellows adorn the cicle.   A few sparkling brads, two sweet pink flowers and the sign of ” is sleeping” is done by ‘yours truly’.

One little girl is going to be so pleased to have her own little door hanger 🙂 How little girls fancy these room accessories while little boys are far in their own world of pirates, military, cars and what have you !!

    shoebox makeover !

    Hello Ladies, how have you been ? Hope your having a good weekend … me, well, we’ve already got into our week.

    This weekend, I was again bitten hard by the recyle bug, pulled out a couple of items from that large container, piled up with scores of items, waiting for a new look or a new dress, if you may.   I went back to trying out some altered art. A photo frame, a door hanger and a shoebox were dressed up with a fancy look.  It is such a joy when something, generally would find its place in the trash is actually given a new look and a new home. Such a gratifying feeling.

    This box will be container for a Mothers day gift with some accessories for her makeup dresser. I think “Mom” is going to be pleased. 

    Just a quick somethings about the recipe :

    • The flowers are first time tried out and made using punches.
    • The paper in the tags are handmade.
    • The butterflies are all paper pieced.
    • The lace is cut out by border punch.
    • The second base of the tags is a label tag from one of my son’s jeans !
    • The sky blue paper around the box on the width is fabric paper.

    Trust you will appreciate it.  🙂 !! Oh I have still not completly posted everything from the last “techniques and folds series” still 3 more to post 😦  ~~~ TIME !!! When do I get enough time ??? But thats the story of every mother these days, isnt it ?

    Alright so here’s the shoe box that I altered.
