Baby Altered $2 Photo Album

Hi Everyone

A really simple idea to share today – but a practical and fun gift with a really personal touch. I have again mainly used the Earth Love collection from Cosmo Cricket- but also some Crate Paper Little Sprout and Lillian because the colours matched so perfectly..
Here’s how I did it!
Pick up a cheap photo album – making sure that the inside covers are easily removable. These ones just slid right out..
Next, simply remove the card inserts front and back, measure accurately and manufacture a work of art to suit the purpose of the gift you are giving! It really couldn;t be simpler. 
You could even just spend 5 mins cutting paper to size and simply use Thickers with a die-cut to spell someones name – SUPER EASY!
I made this one for my sister’s partner – it has a bit more of a manly feel!
This is such a lovely, personal gift – and of course you could fill it with photos for the recipient to make it extra special..  I left mine blank so my sister can fill it with wonderful pics of her new arrival..
Stay tuned for the final day tomorrow – I have another tutorial which I am excited about!
Lowri :-)
