Altered letter holder etc etc etc




I bought a stationery set that was a horrible pink polka dot pattern but made out of really good sturdy cardboard so I have been altering it. I love the finished result as it is very me. I have used basic grey paper to cover the set. The flower used to be bright yellow but I used permanent felt pens to colour it and added a button...really like the result. I have used textured chipboard using my cuttlebug for the letters and swirl. So the next time you are in the shops try and look past the horrible pattern and think how you could alter it using your fav papers.
