Butterflies from paint chips

This is a picture I made using Paintchips and a butterfly punch.

 I attached the butterflies with adhesive foam squares onto plain scrapbook paper.

Here is the finished picture in a 12x12 shadow box frame.

Baby's Treasure Box

This is a treasure box to hold babies precious momentos...or you can make it for yourself as a memory box.  Simply ModPog torn paper onto a wooden box(from Hobby Lobby) then adorn with trinkets and such. I added a small frame on the front to hold baby's picture. I glued small spools on the bottom for feet. I used wire and clear beads to make a handle on top- the box is thin enough to poke the wire through and secure with glue before you add the felt to the inside.I have written a poem that goes on the bottom which you may use. I coated the outside with a coat of varnish and I finished the inside off with felt. The 3 small boxes are made to hold baby's first tooth, hair and booties or whatever you choose.  TFL!

My Treasure Box

A box full of treasures
Some old-Some new
Memories gathered
My whole life through
Some are words written
By family and friends
A keepsake remembered
Again and Again
A lifetime of memories
And treasures held dear
All close to my heart...
You'll find mine in here.

Altered Baby Book

This book is created by repurposing an old book and making it into an altered book...I removed a few of the books pages to make room for all the embellishments.  I used some of my own poetry.  Thanks for looking!
