Today, we have some altered projects to share from our talented Altered Project Designers. Creating projects does NOT come easily to me. So I am always excited to see what our designers have come up with, when they send their projects to my inbox. And just a head's up ... they will be back next Tuesday, with all Easter related projects ;)
Altered Easter Cupcake Stand, by Jennifer Edwardson.
I had so much fun with this project! I make cupcakes for almost any occasion and expecially for every holiday for the kids classrooms. I've got several types of cupcake carriers but I like the cardboard ones that you can toss away after use.
I went through my decorating stash, dug out a stand and made it my own with some help from Bella :)) I adhered paper to the stand bases as well as all (3) 'plates', sanded the edges and put it all back together.
I used a couple of my favorite Big Shot dies and created all the 'wraps' for the cupcakes and the fence around the bottom using different patterns of paper. Once I had the cupcakes and fencing in place I decorated the rest using cute cuts, stickers and precision cut pieces too.
I used a strip from the 'borders' paper and precision cut out all the little bunnies and attached them to round toothpicks along with a few stickers to make little flags for the cupcakes – I love how it all came together.
I hope this inspires you to dig out your own Spring Flings and Easter Things and create some fun easter projects for your family too. Happy Easter!

"Sunshine" altered canvas, by Suzanne Sergi.
Using a 12x12 white canvas, I created a wall hanging, using Sunshine & Happiness. I picked a recent photo of my little girl, and included it onto the canvas. I covered the canvas with the blue chevron at the top, and created fun borders along the bottom, using a scallop border die. I love creating small paper crafts such as these to brighten any room. A banner at the top, and a few punched flowers were the small details I added to this canvas.

Altered Home Organizer, by Marie-Josée Hamel.
I always have pieces of paper in the kitchen on which I list things I need to buy and do, and I find it very annoying when my lists are misplaced or when I have to look around for a pen to write new items on my lists or scratch things that were done, so I decided to create this small home organizer. I chose the Finally Fall collection because it matches my kitchen.
To create my organizer, I bought a clipboard and a wire basket at the dollar store. For the clipboard, I kept it very simple and decided not to cover the whole surface, but just a part of it. You can cover it all if you wish, or you can paint the surface so that it matches the papers you will decide to use. You also have to cover the wire basket, which is pretty easy. All you have to do is measure all sides of it, cut your paper accordingly, and adhere it to the wire basket. I then decorated the basket with ribbon and chipboards and adhered it to the clipboard using Terrifically Tacky Tape. Use the basket to put scraps of paper for notes and pens.
I also wanted to have a special spot where I could write important things, such as appointments and birthdays. I measured the space I had left, cut a piece of chipboard and paper fitting that space, adhered them together, and put a small clip on top. I used pop dots to adhere this piece of chipboard to the clipboard. Using Word, I created a template, one sheet for each month, and cut it.
