Special Ops: Altered Item

Todays Special Ops assignment is an altered tea box with an accompanying mini-album.
It's a super simple process with deeply gratifying results.
~ Everyday Moments ~
1 sheet of patterned paper
8 mini-brads
1 tea box
washi tape
Step 1: Have a tea party with your best pals, taking care to drink enough tea to finish all 20 tea bags from any flavor of Lipton tea that comes in pyramid tea bags.
Step 2: Carefully open the tea box along each of the seams.

Step 3: Lay the opened box onto the patterned paper so that the photos on the tea box lay against the wrong side of the patterned paper. Trace and cut. Trace the lid seperately.
Step 4: Adhere Patterned Paper to the tea box. Set mini-brads along the seams of the box and the lid for reinforcement. Add a strip of washi tape to the split between the lid and the back of the box.

Step 5: Use the instructions posted on the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions blog today to make the accompanying mini-album.

Check my blog, Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies used.

July Basic Training

Welcome to July's Basic Training!
Bottle Cap Flowers
The gorgeous flower on this card was made from simple ingredients and household items.
You will need:
One 20oz coke bottle cap
One 1/2 inch button
One 7 inch piece of twine
Seven 2 inch circles punched from vellum
Pierce two holes in bottle cap using the instructions found in this post:
Step 1.Thread needle with twine and set aside.
Step 2. Place button in the center of one vellum circle and pierce holes for the twine.
Step 3. Stack the 6 remaining vellum circles and pierce 1/2 inch from the edge.
Step 4. Place first vellum circle on paper piercer and then add 6 remaining circles. Fan out the circles so that they complete a circle around the first vellum circle.
Step 5. Hold vellum firmly, remove paper piercer.
Step 6. Run needle and twine through bottle cap, vellum circles, and button so that button will be inside the cap when the twine is pulled tight. Run twine back down through second button hole, vellum, and bottle cap.
Step 7. Press button into bottle cap and tie tightly with two knots. Leave twine ends for attaching flower to project.
Step 8. Fold vellum down around the bottle cap to resemble a flower.
Step 9. Attach to project by piercing corresponding holes in cardstock and tie twine ends. After attaching use a little hot glue to hold the bottle cap firmly to the page.
Have fun, and be creative!!
