I wanted to  make a special birthday book for a friend, so I decided to try altering a child's board book.  Picked it up at the dollarama, I liked the scalloped shape (though I cursed that later as i cut edges).  It's decoupaged and painted and stamped and I added a wooden bird cutout I had to the front.  Oh plus a little sparkly nailpolish fished an unclean looking edges problem Smiley  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out for a first effort, ust making it up as I went along.  Will be giving it to her tomorrow hopefully.





I will try this again but next time I want to do it when I've thought out my pages more and have access to a printer.

I have never thought about altering a board book.  Clever, I love this and am going to have to play around with this idea.  Awesome, Fancybutch.
