Pen/ Stuff Holder

So I got the itch to ALTER!!!! I haven't altered in quite awhile. I had altered a frame the other day, then another project (which I will blog next month) and then I felt the need to alter something else!!! It's been awhile, and it felt soooo good to get down and dirty with some paper
Here is a pen/ stuff holder that I altered out of a wooden birdhouse:
I used some Echo Park and MME papers for this project.
This is what I started with:
Next I started adding my papers:
Then even though the house itself was wooden, I actually added wood patterned paper along the bottom and inked it with Tea Dye Ranger Distress Ink to give it more of a worn look:
Next I added the embellies and also added some Broken China paint in the cracks:
and one more detail on the side, I'm a sucker for stars:
And here it is all filled out and ready to go:
A pretty quick and easy project or even as a fun gift to dress up someone's office or desk.

Hope you have a wonderful day!!!!!
