Faux File Folder Mini

Here is my Mini I made from the tutorial from Angelwings14100 on youtube. Here is a link to the videos. I used BoBunny paper from the  Hello Sunshine line 6x6 pad. This was a very fun and quick mini that can be made in about 2 days or 1 if you are really fast. It does need a t least a 36 count pad of paper and about 5 sheets of 12x12 Cardstock.

Altered Bottle


Here are some altered bottles I did. I got the idea from Heidi Bound. Here is her blog that you can check out. Gotham city stampers I received the bottle from a friend. I decoupaged various themed paper with a gel medium. Once dried I distressed it with some of Tim Holt's distress inks. I cut an eiffel tower die from my machine and adhered it to the bottle. I also added various flowers that i got from the floral section of my craft store, aged them with Distres ink also. I also decided to add Mica flakes to my tower. I added various flowers and other embellishments. Try on and see what you come out with.

Glitter Glue

Hot Glue Gun and sticks


Circle dies and or template- I used Spellbinders S4-114 I also cut a template about 4 1/2" circle for my brim.

Stuffing_ I will just use a plastic bag from walmart to stuff it
