Altered Scrapbook Cover

I altered the cover of a scrapbook my friend sent me.  I had everything on hand to make this, so this was a zero dollar project for me.

Here's a little tutorial.

I started with a plain scrapbook my friend sent me.

I cut a piece of burlap and glued it down using Mod Podge.

I added some jute burlap and a ribbon to the left and glued down salt dough stars which I stamped.  I spelled out my son's name using foam lettering from the Dollar Store.  I braided jute twine and glued it down along the edges using Mod Podge.  I used clothes pegs to keep it in place until it dried.

I fashioned these curly things out of jute twine and glued them down, keeping them in place with tape until they dried.

I mounted a black and white photo using foam bits.  I might change this photo to a different one in sepia - the one I used was the only one I had that was suitable at the time.

I added a button using a glue gun and added ties using jute twine, also affixed with a glue gun. And there you have it.
