Altered Items

Turn a simple brown frame, (in this case I used a puzzle frame), into a wonderful home decor item. All it takes is a quick coat of paint, a few embellies, and some great ribbon like those found in the ZZ July Vintage Summer Kit.


You know all that empty packaging your left with once you break open your favourite scrap supplies?  Well, why not recycle it into something useful again!  For this project I took some empty packaging from Heidi Swapp letters, traced the inside backing onto my cardstock and cut out.  Then I used a few of the gorgeous ribbon from the ZZ July Vintage Summer Kit to accent.  Added a cute picture of my daughter with a friends dog, and then, on the outside of the package I did a few doodles to add a layering effect.  A matching blossom, and voila!  My daughter now has a cute little tag to tie to her back pack! 


You could also use packaging from eyelets/brads to make shaker tags too. Use your imagine and have fun!!  And don’t forget we’d love to see your creations in our gallery!!
