Altered Domino Book

I had the pleasure this past week to work at the Great American Scrapbook Convention with Sandy Redburn of Crafty Secrets, her husband Scott, and Vicki Chrisman, Crafty Secret's design team leader. Today I'd like to show you the little gift that I made for Vicki. Since I would be her TA for the Vintage Cookbook class, I thought a little cooking related book would be in order.

For the cover of the book, I inked a couple of dominoes with alcohol ink then added paper and stamped images from Crafty Secrets.

I used baker's twine laced through pre-drilled holes for the closure.

The back of the book cover has more paper, stamped border and sticker from Crafty Secrets.

For the inside of the book, I used various stamped images, stickers and papers from the Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage collection.

I had so much fun making this tiny book that I made one for Sandy, too. I'll post it another day...maybe tomorrow.

Hi Sarah, I've just found you and have enjoyed seeing your awesome creations! This mini is so adorable! I've made several of these but have always used regular dominoes. I'll have to look for some with those holes; so cute! Hugs, Sarah

Never tried Shrinky in crafting, except when my girls were little and played with shrinky little pony toy! What you've done is wonderfully grownup! Inspired to try again! Good work! And thanks!
