October SFTIO Altered Item

The October SFTIO Kit comes with a scalloped, rectangular, sheer Maya Road album to alter. You can see the original album, here.

I had done mini-albums for the last two SFTIO kits, so I wanted to do something a bit different, here's what I came up with.

I made a 3-D flower by folding the album pages in half and joining them with eyelets. The leaves I die cut from the remaining album pages. I colored the whole thing with alcohol ink.

On one side I added photos and a title.
The other side I left plain.
I hung the whole thing by a ribbon.
So it can spin and you can see both sides.

Depending on the effect you wanted, you could cover both sides with photos or leave both sides plain. You could also cut down the pages to make a slightly smaller flower.

This is so "creatively" fun! Love love love the way the album will swing in the breeze. This is really a unique and different way to use the album!
