MME "Cut & Paste Flair" Altered Diary.

Remember this lovely altered notebook on this post?!

 Today, Jenny is back with a fab altered diary which would make a perfect gift for Christmas.

 

I started off with this very plain and boring black diary which I bought for just £1 



I made this diary for my teenage daughter who has a thing about all things "nerdy" and as soon as I saw this glasses paper I knew I wanted to use it for something for her. Having recently started work she needs a diary to write her shifts down in. I started off with sheet of kraft card which I cover the whole diary with. I then matted the glasses paper which comes from MME Cut Paste Flair pad onto a piece of black card. I have used some Basic Grey Candy Buttons in the corners to add a little bit of interest to them. 




The glasses are from a necklace which I took apart I have used a set of numbers from an old set of Alpha's which I had tucked away. I stuck the glasses down with glossy accents and then filled the lenses with it to give them a more realistic appearance. I added a couple of flat backed gems to the corners for a little bit of sparkle.

Have you altered a notebook or diary (or some other office supply) recently? Leave a link in your comment so we can pop by and see it!

Jenny is a busy Mum with three children and regularly blogs her cards and crafts at Dragonllews Spot!
