Altered Notebooks



You might know that I took part in the first Hero Arts Artist Trading Card (ATC) International swap that was held recently and when I received my ATC's I checked into each ATC creators blog/FLICKR photostreams to say "thanks".  I came across Sarah's blog and saw she had an amazing tutorial on how to create Altered Notebooks - just perfect for those little Christmas gifts.  I made some last week and they were a hit!


I used the Cosmo Cricket - Jolly by Golly Range of cardstock and added fimo buttons which I had made with embroidery floss/ribbon.  I used tall jotters from Tesco which worked beautifully - if you want to see the jotter pad tutorial click here.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
