Altered Journal

I made a couple simple gifts for a friend who has a birthday this week. I think they came out really cute and they so easy to make.

The journal I bought a while ago....actually I bought several of these, planned on using them for something, did use them, stuck them away. I found them a couple of days ago and thought they would make really cute altered gifts. The paper is from the Spring DCWV stack and the stamp is Close to my Heart. You can see the whole set if you click here I have had this set for a while now and love it. I find I can use it for a lot of different things.
The Starbucks bottle has starburst in it (yes I bought candy to match the paper,lol) and I have wanted to make some of these for a while now. I have tons of these bottles that I have been saving and finally used one! I just painted the lid and used the same paper that I used on the journal. Hopefully, she like it!
