Altered spoon mini

I saw on a blog...Michelle's Thought of a Cardmaking Scrapbooker, I beautiful project. a Kitchen spoon made into a mini album..It got me to thinking about a couple of wooden spoons that i bought on clearance several years ago figuring I would find something to do with them, and I did..Mine is not as pretty as hers, but I had fun just the same .
Basic shapes cart, and cut the mats 4 inches, the pattern paper 3 1/2 and then another mat for mounting picture on at 3 inches. I attached them together on a strip of ribbon. folded them up afterwards and tied the ribbon to hold in place.
One of the spoons was a booger and would not keep the mats in place after I tied the bow, so I attached a crocheted flower to the bottom of the spoon to keep it there. The Christmas bell and the poinsettia were cut from the Wrap it Up cartridge. I believe the ctus were 4 inches as well.
Hope you liked my version.

  5. Hi Cathy, I know I've already left a comment on this post earlier, but I just wanted to say thanks for dropping by, saying Hi, and leaving me this link to come look at(again.) I can see why it is one of your favorites and I still love the rosette wreath that was right before this. I hope you are doing OK and that things are getting a little better everyday. You are still in my prayers.
