Belle of the Ball Altered Book....with Video Tutorial

Take an ordinary book and make it extraordinary! I am doing just that, for this Live with Prima class using the brand new Debutante collection by Prima. This shabby chic style project is perfect for upcoming proms, weddings or anniversaries. See the transformation unfold and get a taste of what this amazing collection has to offer!

A closer look at the cover...

The pages are simple to re-create. Just add layers of papers, 3x4 or 4x6 journal cards, chipboard, wood icons, pearls, resins, metal clips, and trims...along with doily, flower and label dies made with paper and vellum.
