Guess what this is

Give up? It is a reused TH adage ticket album.

I just painted, inked, ribboned and added some fun things for the front. Viola!! A fun and easy mini! I love dying the white May Arts silk ribbon. I used Peeled Paint and it became such a soft green with a hint of brown. I also dyed the bright green and white twine, just dulling the color a little. Found an old HS foam stamp, inked with saddle brown and the went over it again with some antique white acrylic.

live mini 001 I cut manila folders and attached them to the tabs at the top. I used TH edgies and cut the bottom mini 004I sprayed the manila folders with Peeled paint, coffee shop, and simply khaki. Inked the edges with saddle brown. There were 12 tabs, I sandwiched the cut manila folders in between 2, so I had 6 pages.

live mini 002This is the inside front. Added G45 Steampunk, and stapled adage stickers to the ticket cut out. Love all the flourishes in pretty green that were already there.

live mini 005The inside back page. Used all G45 Steampunk, and a really old HS stamp.
