Altered Playing Cards Mini Album

The "June" Challenge has just launched over at Rhedds Creative Spirit...
For my design team piece I altered some playing cards to make in to a mini album....

I covered both sides of these old playing cards with quite thick card, using book binder's glue as the surface of the cards are laminated and I didn't think they would withstand any sanding down.
When they were all dry,I trimmed them down and re-rounded the corners....they ended up really nice and sturdy,almost like board.



I used these fabulous papers from Graphic45 to decorate both sides of the cards, added some pockets and labels, I also cut some of the individual images and added them as well.

There's a great prize to be had again this months winner...this lovely Tea Light Holder, all ready for you to decorate....so do pop over for a look.


The challenge is here at ......Rhedd's Creative Spirit
