Altered Art! Valentine's Mini Heart Book

It's a little early for a Valentine's themed post, but since we aughta show love year round, I'll share what I made today :) It's a little palm-sized altered art heart book...
For the heart bases of each page, I used my Marvy-Uchida big ol' heart-shaped punch on some cereal box cardboard. Then I went through and glued on red and pink and other sweethearty papers and fabrics.
Then I went through and embellished each page, each side. 5 pages in all, double-sided.

To bind them, I used my 1/8'' hole punch to punch 3 holes in each. Then I connected em with some big gold jump rings

And we finish with an lolcat for good measure. I hope you like it!!!

I love it. You have given me some ideas for my precious Marvy Uchida Giga Scallop punch. Thank you. :) On a different note I am catching up on blogs. I am sorry about Kitty. She was so beautiful. I enjoyed reading about her. Sending you hugs.
