RRR Anything Goes Challenge: Lilac Whisper Shabby Chic Altered Notebook
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! It’s time for a brand new challenge over on the RRR Blog. I’ve created this lovely Lilac Whisper Shabby Chic Altered Notebook for this fun “anything goes with ribbon, lace or trim” challenge.
I have had more fun with the Perfectly Purple Ribbon Mix! For this project I used Mixed Purple Triangle Print Grosgrain Ribbon to create a frame on this altered notebook.
This notebook is another of my garage sale finds. It was very drab, but it had good bones, so I brought it home with me. You’d never guess now how dreary it was in its former life.
I added a pretty ribbon marker and double layer bow with Hyacinth Checkerboard Satin ribbon. Silver Metallic String really pops with these pretty purple ribbons, so I added some of that in as well.
I dug through my ephemera file to find this darling vintage image of a little girl leading the birds in a sweet chorus of song. It was just the right size to fit inside the window on the front cover.
This is such a quick and easy upcycle project! You can adapt it for use with any sized notebook. I’m going to tuck this one into my “last minute gift” drawer, where I’m sure it will come in handy.
