I love to alter ANYTHING!

Now that I've got my camera working again, I can now post a few things that I've been working on! I'm a member of SplitCoast Stampers, Secret Sisters Club, and here are the gifts I'm sending my "little" this month!

The first item is for my "little", she loves ribbons for her projects, so I gave her a sampling of all the ribbons I own for scrapbooking. I think it ends up being about 60 yards! The jar is an altered salsa jar (my DH loves salsa) I cut the circles using my Coluzle, lightly sanded the lid and attached the circles and ribbon using Modge Podge. The sign on the jar is attached with sticky strip on the ends and mono for extra security on each layer. I hope she likes it!

I love to alter anything I can get my hands on, and it's amazing what you can find at you home or even in Target's $1 Spot (my favorite place for alterables). That's where I got this lunch box last fall during back to school. I attached the SU! designer paper with Modge Podge on both sides, and created my own chipboard letter by using the SU! letter as a template on the packing boards they include in their designer paper packs. I glued my papers to it using the MP and cut them out. Inside the lunch box are letter magnets I made using the Big Deal Alpha and Stayzon. My little's son is 4, so hopefully he will enjoy this. Since I have a little girl, I don't have a clue on what to make for little boys, I hope he likes this!
