Sandy from Creative Scrapbooking Divas had a posting on this today.  A few months ago I made one for a card swap,  I didn't post it then because I got the idea from a blog but I couldn't find it anymore.  I apologize for not giving the appropriate credit.  But  it is such a cutie that I want to share it!

Altered Scissors


I've been working on some back to school gifts for my nieces.  This is the first one, altered scissors with a charm.  One charm says Lil' Sister, the other one says Big Sister.  I glued paper on them with E6000 glue, decorated with Stickles and covered with a layer of glass effects. I found the cute charms at Hobby Lobby.
I had altered scissors before, but I forgot to take pictures before I gave them away.  There is a tutorial but I could not find it.  I'll update this entry when I find it again.   The rest of the projects are more altered items with  Hello Kitty.


 I won at Challenges by AR with my heart box.  It is being featured there.  I got 2 templates and a badge to wear on my blog!  All the projects were relly nice.  I also got a template in a daily raffle.  Winning is so much fun!  You can see it here or if you click on the badge on the top right side.
