Alter it

This week on the Cupcake Craft Challenge the theme is 'Alter it' and I have altered some beer mats to make a hanging decoration. I have had a bit of a hard time taking photos for this project but here are some.

I have covered the beer mats with paper and stuck them to together and put ribbon through the middle to secure them. I have done this project for one of the classes I teach at Sir stampalot and we made a box to put the finished project in.
I got the beer mats from car boot sale so no I did not go round pubs pinching beer mats lol.
The prize this week on Cupcake is 4 digital images from Pink Gem designs so have a look around and see what you can alter and join in the fun and check out the fab ideas from all the dt members who do amazing work.
Bye for now

Wow this is so beautiful Louise, what a great idea. This is my first visit to your blog and I'm going to have a really good mooch around.
Can I ask a couple of questions if I may?
What is the font used on your blog? and also where is the square frame die from that you've used on the top of this little box?
Thanks so much, Anne x
