Altering Composition Books

I altered a couple of those $1 composition books........I thought the cover needed a little pick-me-up. I used plumber's tape that comes in a roll, embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder, colored it with alcohol inks and added nailheads. After doing those steps, I glued it to the book covers. I also did the inside completely. The one with my name on it, I used metal pieces that I colored with alcohol inks from my stash and added the appropriate letters to spell my name.

Here are some watercolor papers that I colored for the signatures of the books. You know I can have any "white" pages anywhere around me.


  1. Ok, I need to know how you used those little embossing folders to do the tape - please??? I have the tape, have the folders - though I now have to put them through a Big Kick since I don't have my Cuttlebug anymore - but ... yeah. Please?? I love what you did!

  2. Gorgeous journals, beautiful papers.

  3. Another fantastic piece! Love it!
