Another place to look for bases is the dollar store. I've got a couple with one large door, and inside were key ring hooks, easy to remove.

I've been trying to find something like that for the past month! I swear, St. Louis is severly lacking in decent shopping.

anyone is welcome at any time, there isn't any specific start or stop date.

and post pics!

Okay, I've got pics.  Smiley

Here's a link to the shrine for my dad that I posted in the color craftalong (scroll down to my name)::
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=91746.50

Since then I've made 2 more.

My son wrote a poem called Power In Water, and I made this one for him.  The picture inside is hard to capture in a photo.  It's from a little Japanese calendar and is a pic of a waterfall.  I used a clear glass flat marble to represent a drop of water and sort of magnify part of the waterfall.  The words on the back are the last line of the poem.  It says, "Remember well the power in water and know that your spirit lives."







The next one I made for my daughter-in-law as a belated Mother's Day gift.  The little silver blocks below his picture say "Angel," and the word on the heart on back says "Love."

I love those little book shrines! Yours are really nice. I really like the way you used the hanger. I have been cutting mine off, but beading it is such a nice touch.

Thank you rackycoo!  Actually, I cut the hangers off too.  The beads are strung onto waxed linen.  I just poke a hole in the spine of the book at the top, then loop the linen through to make the beaded dangle.  I'm glad you like them.  Smiley

amaryllisroze, I've never seen any book shrines other than yours either, and they are so amazing that I had to steal the idea and try my own.  Thank you for being so generous with your talent and sharing how you did them with all of us.  I never would have tried one if I hadn't seen yours first, so you were my inspiration.  Thanks!
