Altered book cover = photo stand


Altered book cover  = photo stand

So I started with an old Enid Blyton book cover.  For my design team project for my LSS Made With Love.With grandeur plans to use up my patterned papers as book pages.


Of course, after misting the Prima canvas sheet, adhering to the cover and then embellishing with pretty stuff, I was tired...*LOL*


And decided that it would make a nice little photo stand instead...


So I used my fave photo of the nephews in 2013 and added some rub-ons along the photo edge [to match the cover].


I used my trusty Xyron 9" Creative Station to adhere the canvas sheet, cardstock and photo. You definitely need an even layer of adhesive for home decor projects! :)

Please check out the rest of the Made With Love team projects..
