Altered Cereal Box - 'Me' Mini Album

Stop! Don't throw away the cereal box! Recycle it. Today, for Papier DT Project, I'm sharing with you my altered cereal box using my beloved Slice. I created a mini album.

I used plain c/s to create this mini album, a lot of stamping and inking added.

- To make the base, select a shape from the Noteworthy Slice Design Card (size 4in) and cut out the cereal box.

- Use the same shape and size, cut out the c/s and paste it onto the base (cereal box cutouts).

For the cover of this mini album, I used Studio Essentials Slice Design Card (size 3in) and cut out the middle section to create a window. As you can see, a lot of stamping and inking going on here.

Me, I am a...
The alphabet m & e is from the Applique Basics Slice Design Card (size 1.5in).

Daughter. "Think BIG thoughts but relish small pleasures. -H.Jackson Brown Jr."

Sister. "We are always the same age inside. -Gertrude Stein."

Wife. "Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction. -Antoine de Saint."

Mother. "Flowers have the sun, children have their mothers."

Give it a try, make one for yourself and do share it with me. Happy scrapping!
