Fairy Tale Book Ends..

(Will be in Paper Trends Magazine's Aug/Sept 2008 issue.)

I was asked to alter a wooden crown and shoe for Say It With Letters, an on-line store that sells a huge variety of wooden items! Here is the site if you'd like to check out what the other girls on the team did! They will be posted all this week, so keep checking back! When I first saw them, I thought of fairy tales and decided to use these wooden pieces as book ends for my daughter Kati's room! Her room is pink and green with other pastel colors as accents!

Supplies used: Wooden crown and shoe from SIWL, die cuts and rub ons by Fancy Pants-Crush line, Jenni Bowlin paper, Wrights ric rac, gems from The Beadery, and the letters are Tim Holtz- Grungeboard painted white! Love the Grungeboard too! I painted the edges of the wooden items white before adding the paper.

Do you like to alter? If so, link me to your favorite altering project you've done..I'd love to see! Have a good day! ~Danielle~
