Birthday Gift Idea!!! Altered Book!!

Hello my lovely's,  I'm here today to share another gift I made for a sweet
friends Birthday,  this lady loves pink!! flowers!! Lace!! Bling!! Pearls and
anything Shabby Chic!! 
 I bought a few hard backed books from my local charity shop in the knowledge
that they were going to be altered and given out as gifts!!  we all have
tons of stash that we never seem to get round to using and this is
the perfect way of using up all the odd bits n bobs and making
something extra special for friends. 
 There are lots of tutorials on You Tube on how to alter books and once
you've done one then you will find your own way of adapting so that
it becomes an easy process.
All of my flowers with the exception of one are from I Am Roses,  the rest
of my embellishments are from my stash.  I hope you will give this techniqe a try,

Here is a wee video showing various angles of the book,  in the meantime I wish
you all a safe, healthy and crafty weekend.
