Alter it at Incy Wincy!!

Hi all

Can you believe it is Monday again!! Where are the weeks flying to? My kids break up on Friday so they are all looking forward to their time off school - there will be no peace in my house for nearly 7 weeks LOL!

This weeks challenge over on Incy Wincy is "Alter it", we would like to see you reuse, recycle and be creative by giving something a new lease of life!

This week we are being sponsored by Aspire to Thrive Children's Charity and the FAB prize is $10 voucher to ATTCC shop who sell the most FAB digi images!

I have used the rose digi by Mary Helen Sims which is available over at Aspire to Thrive, the detail in the rose is amazing!

At work I often get promotional freebies promoting different organisations and initiatives and I got hundreds of chipboard coasters which I have altered to make a cheap but very stylish (I hope) teachers gift, I am going to put some chocolates in the box for the gift but then afterwards she can use it as a pen holder!

Rose was coloured in using Promarkers and then decoupaged to add dimension. I covered the coasters with Mod Podge and cut paper to size, rounded the corners and stuck it on! I then punched holes in the edges and tied it together with ribbon. The base was simply glued on using strong adhesive.
