I caught on to the altered book craze a while ago, and after stumbling upon some old international postcards (holy cow the stamps were cool) I thought I'd give it a go.

Here's what I came up with so far...

And a close up of the left side:

(It reads : We travel the world over to find the beautiful)


Thanks for looking!

I used green scrapbooking paper. The earthy paper on the left side is handmade and I died the tags with coffee. Since this pic, I've tied the tags to the three individual cut pages in the middle and moved on to another page with a window! (I was feeling ambitious.)

Now would be a good time to ask: any helpful hints when creating a window for altered books?

Use a NEW sharp blade!!!! I've gotten some raggedy edges-but I usually cover it with paper any ways Grin

When I'm doing a window, I like to have several pages glued together before I cut the window (for stability, especially if you plan to embellish the edges)
