"The Way It Is" Altered Book (Rozy Smith)

"The Way It Is" Altered Book
by Rozy

Spray paint cardboard book with Krylon Leather Brown. Let dry for a couple of days.

Using Heartfelt Creations Floral Key Collection, line the inside of the box with paper of choice, on the inside flap use an old music sheet to line the flap. Cut out word sentiments that fit the theme, adhere to the right side of music sheet.

Fold a doily in half continuing until there are several folds to pleat the doily, then distress and adhere to right side of box. Adhere a flat doily to the left side.

Create tag out of the paper collection; the tag also has a pleated, distressed doily attached to the left side.

Use a Tim Holtz clear bottle, fill with decorations of your choice (I use inserts from intricate dies that I have saved in a bottle for future use). Tie it with a ribbon, insert flowers, leaves to create a bouquet then adhere to base of box. Proceed to decorate to your hearts desire.

On the front, look for Vintage items galore!

Using Heartfelt Creations Floral Key Collection pick a frame, cut out the center, apply a vintage picture behind the frame.

Using Vintage tickets, tags with the framed picture, adhere to background paper that is cut to the size of the front of the box. Wrap with ribbon before attaching. Proceed to embellish in the style of choice. As always, don't hesitate to decorate and have fun.

When finished wrap jute around the front flap and attach metal charms. Using a hot glue gun center items and anchor. Make a large bow, in the center place a Frantic Stamper Cameo. Apply white lace adhesive strips around outside of book and sprinkle music notes.

Attach white lace adhesive strips with Doodlebug Sprinkles in the center, sprinkle musical notes across the page.

Voila! One of a kind gift!
