Altered Address Book, by Brigitte Grant

Brigitte Grant, from Australia, shares a tutorial on altering an address book.  Brigitte started with a plain wire coil bound address book that you see in the photo at left.  She then altered it to make the cute book above.  Follow the instructions below to try it yourself. 

You can visit Brigitte’s blog here to see more of her work.

Altered Address Book Instructions

1. First undo/loosen the metal spine of your book.
2. Cover your front and back cover of your book with printed papers. (Best for this is to use thin papers! Here, front (is) covered with : Urban Lilly paper, back cover: Stamp-it Aust).
3. Cut the holes (where the metal spine will go through) with a craft knife.
4. Replace the covers and embellish the front cover with desired embellishments etc.
5. Cut strips of coloured cardstock, attach to side of pages and use alphabet rub-ons etc. and voila!
Thank you Brigitte!
