Welcome to The Scrapoholic,
I apologize for blogger not posting when I had this scheduled to post at 4 am this morning!
you should have just come from Jessica at Overjoyed Scrapper
If not please go to the beginning of the hop which starts at
Jamie at Glitter, Stamps, and Paper, Oh My
Otherwise if your following the hop in order, stay here and enjoy my 2 (two) projects for you today! I couldn't decide on which to do and really love how both turned out. They make great gifts too!
The First one is an altered papermache book I got a Joann's, I think for $3.99. It opens up to be able to store things in. I got the inspiration from someone's blog they did theirs quite different and for decoration. While mine has a multi-purpose use. It can be displayed as a decoration and at the same time be a keepsake for Letters to Santa over the years that your kids write and/or Santa writes back. I sell these for $10 + shipping. If you'd like a custom made one let me know I can do them in different colors and things too. Just email me at TheScrapoholic@gmail.com. So I basically painted the book brown with gold acrylic paint as seen here:
|I added a printed sticker to the book.|

Then I started with all these supplies:
I then inked all paper edges in Pear CTMH Ink. I adhered the CTMH Mistletoe papers down with my ATG gun and glue dots. The Stamp of Santa is a CTMH clear acrylic stamp set retails for $13.95 which can be purchased HERE and if you add just $7.05 more in CTMH products you will recieve a free D size stamp (retails for $22.95) what a great deal huh!? I think so! I added green gross grain ribbon and prima poinsettias. I hand wrote "Letters to Santa" with my CTMH Holiday Red and Chocolate color markers.
This is the finished front Cover:
This is the inside of the box decorated with just some CTMH Mistletoe Papers:
The 2nd Project I did was an Altered Clipboard! its a 12 x12 CTMH White ccliboard (now retired) wish i had more this sure was a fun project and i want to do more.
I started with all these supplies:
I then adhered down all the papers which are the new CTMH Wings B&T Paper (available next year in Jan) I simply cut and used both sides. I used CTMH Cardstock to cut out Goofy from the cricut using Disney Mickey and Friends cardtridge. I used a 6x6 peice of "Cork board" which was adhered using U-Glue Dashes. I also used CTMH chipboard bookplates, circle and squares covered them with paper and adhered them to the clip board with the U-Glue dashes along with the metal "clips" that are attached to the chipboard using a brad and U-Glue dashes. I also covered a pen with paper and simply adhered the paper with my ATG gun adhesive and wrapped it around the pen tightly by rolling the pen. I used assorted ribbons to embellish.
The best part of the whole board is the "Dry Erase Board" which I made using a "photo mat" like and cut a peice of plastic from a clear box to fit and adhered it using photo anchors. Yes, you can write on the recycled clear plastic with Dry Erase markers just like on a Dry erase board! How cool is that right!!! Wipes right off using a cloth or tissue that easily!
CTMH adhesive Gems (pearls).
