Alter It

Polkadoodle day again and this week Ruth would like us to Alter It.

Now before I go any further, I have to explain the odd picture and the fact my project looks a bit distant. Have you ever tried to photograph a long zigzag project ? Believe me it was difficult trying to show all of it and in the end I decided the only way it worked was to lay it over a dish, but it does fold down into a square when closed.

I have used the back card pages from a couple of old spiral notebooks, cut them into 6x6 squares and covered with a mixture of Bazzil cardstock and papers from the new All Around and Everywhere Polkadoodle CD. I pounced holes with the Zutter, used co-ordinating ribbons to tie it together and decorated with flowers and hearts from the CD, plus brads and punched borders.
