Dollar Find Friday

Hey everyone!! I'm here with this week's Dollar Find Friday post, also featured on the There She Goes Blog. My dollar find was in the $1 bins at my "not so" local, Joann's. It was this cute little address book, that I decided to make cuter.

I started by removing both the front and back cover. I then covered them with black card stock, then layered that with red and some Rockabilly DP from SU.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Dance set, and layered it with red. My flowers and leaves were stamped separately, then colored with Copics, cut out, and added on. I did add brads to the center of my flowers....for some reason, they just needed them

And there you have it, my altered address book!! Here is a tip for all of you out there....when adding your card stock layer to the front, be sure to use a strong adhesive. JUST DON'T put it where you are going to have to punch holes...what a mess!! Don't ask me how I know....

Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you enjoyed!!
