Recycling Crafts -CD case notebooks again!

CD case Notebooks
Dear friends I am sure you are by now bored of my CD case recycled notebooks.My God I am bored of this series myself!! I wonder how professional crafters manage to churn up multiple orders for their clients!!
CD case recycling

Well the cover of this CD case has foam flowers and fabric flowers- both from the local market and not very expensive but being a crafter I dont relish ready made embellishments...I have to spend hours trying to see if I can make it!! [Do you do that??]

For new visitors ..I did manage to make my own foam flowers and you can make your own too :
I still have to figure out how to make the fabric flower though....fabric and me dont get along much!!!

  8. Another beautiful case!!! I love how you embellish these -- sooooo beautiful! I'll have to do one and try my hand at these!

    My sweet friend, when I can alter with the detail and beauty of your altered projects then, at that time, I may consider myself an altering queen but until that time I'm so glad to let you hold the title... lol!!!

    Hugs!

  11. I'm not at all bored with these, they are very pretty.. I do understand getting bored with making the same thing over and over though. That's why I do so many different kinds of crafts, I can't stick to just one thing
