Altered items for a secret friend...



I thought I'd give you a peek at some projects I've been working on lately. This is for a secret exchange I joined. The package is going out in the mail today... Can't say who it's heading to, my lips are sealed!

The paper I used on these items is made by K & Company, and I thought it worked beautifully with the Baroque Motifs set. I love altering journals because they are fun and easy. The monogram M is chipboard I got at JoAnn's, inked up with Very Vanilla craft ink. The altered bottle was fun too... any reason to drink some frappuccino!! I filled it with yummy Hershey's kisses. The last item is an Altoid tin, the first I've done. I kept it pretty simple. The edge of the lid is lined with sticky strip, then covered with clear microbeads. I really hope the recipient likes these items as much as I enjoyed making them.
