You could alter it.

Make it like a scrap book, and put pictures on the pages. While decoupage at the same time, don't rip the pages out. Just make this book your own. Decorate the inside.

I bought this book from this lady who did nothing but alter books. Her ideas are marvelous... she took match boxes and cut the pages so the match boxes would lay in the book when closed and made little secret compartments.

She also the a middle section of the book about 50 pages or so deep and made a little mini shadow box inside the book, whilst decorating the remaining pages.

I say, do something like that. But make it a photo album.

That's on my to do list!!

I got this idea from another craftster. I can't quite remember the user name. But her ear rings looked really similar to mine, my stars just have a different paper pattern, and I am quite please with how they turned out.

My nana, always put the food bowl on top of a little saucer, and in that saucer she put a little bit of water.
It works.

Take the F key and the U key and make ear rings. Now you have FU. Or your initials. Whatever is more appropriate.

To burn my holes, I got an old ice pick and heated it over the stove, and it went right through the record.

Here's the one I made, I found an Orange Record. I just cut it in half and glued it at an angle so it could stand. It was really easy, and fun to burn!! haha. Good Idea. Gave me something to do.

For now to appease the parental unit, just go to the beauty supply store and buy some cheeep hair (synthetic kankelon ect..) and make some of your own.

    If you buy the long stuff you just take a good sized pinch of hair(depending on how big you want your dreads) and make a larks head knot around a groovy piece of ribbon or cool scarf.  Stabilize 1/2 of the hair and tease the other side like crazy.  Once it is all teased, smooth and roll until it gets to kinda a "dready" shape.  Do the other one.  Once rolled, use a hair dryer on high heat and start at the top and slowly move down toward the end.  The heat kinda melts the plastic hair and holds it into place.  Do a few and slide them together.  Once finished, you just tie the ribbon or scarf up in your hair/ make a ponytail and it looks like you are dreaded.

    I have made many in different colors (pink, black, Burgundy, brown, blond, white..)  I change them around like I change my shirt!  Still fit in as a teacher by day, and super cool hair by night!

edit**  I'm new here and did not even notice how long this thread was.  Sorry if I repeated something that was already posted....

good idea, if you could--do you have pictures...I'd like to learn a little more about it!! :]
