Antique Photo Album

Hi Everyone,

   Today I want to share with you this very Antique Photo Album that I purchase from a local thrift store for $10 dollars!! I couldn't believe it! Usually these are very expensive so I was so excited to have found one for a great deal :) 

I tried to keep the original paper and designs of this album! I added a few vintage embellishments to alter it a little bit. WATCH VIDEO ON THIS BOOK HERE!

The pages are very old and I am getting ready to add some vintage photos of my family!  I am hoping that this album can stay in the family!!

I had so much fun putting it together and I hope you enjoy it too!

DIY Shabby Buttons Storage - Under $1.00

Happy Friday Everyone,

  Today I am so excited to share with you this DIY Storage Idea that you can use to store your buttons, flowers, embellishments, candy and so much more!!

   I wanted to create a storage for my vintage buttons.  So I used a Plant Vase and a Glass Bowl.  You can easily find these items at any store or thrift stores.  I found both of mine at the thrift stores for 50 cents each.

Step 1: 

Find a glass bowl and a plant vase with a plate big enough to serve as a lid for the glass bowl.

Step 2: 

Paint and Altered your plant vase and plate in whatever color or style you choose.  

Step 3: 

Once you have altered your vase glue the glass bowl to the bottom of your plant vase.  This will serve as the base for our buttons storage :)

I used E6000 Glue to adhere my glass bowl to the vase.  I let it dry over night! 

Step 4: 

Add your items to the glass bowl and place your lid on top! 

That's it you have a very inexpensive and beautiful way to store your items!!!! 

I hope you give this a try and are inspire to create one!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will be back with more! :)
