Altered Notebook, Art Bucket & Embellishment Folio for Reneabouquets

Hi everyone, I'm up on the blog today to share with you some fun projects you can create for yourself or they would be great as little "happy mail" for someone special. This month Reneabouquets hosted a "altered notebook" swap, so lets' start with that project I created for my swap partner.
I started with just a standard notebook, removed the covers and covered with Prima's Golden Coast paper collection.  Reneabouquets store has so many gorgeous items that work well with this paper collection. Very summery, beachy, vacation style. I then added the BB Heart Deco Circle Bead Frame
and applied the Mermaids Iridescent Pearls and accented it with the BB Starfish. (All supplies will be listed below in the video description)
I then created a dangle charm to hang by the side of the notebook with charms, beautiful board starfish, tassles, etc. 
I wanted to send my swap partner some goodies to create with or to share in RAK'S as well so I was inspired by Tmika (Scrapdaworld for this embellishment folio. Super easy but a fun way to send packages of little trinkets, ribbons, chipboard etc to your friends. It was created from medium weight chipboard and then embellished with BB Bubbles Textured Panel and added pearls. Then I had to use Reneabouquets gorgeous BB Spring Butterfly and some flowers from the store. 
The inside opens to two side panels that you can adhere your embellishment bags for a pretty presentation. 
Now my swap partner is known for having fun with mixed media and I wanted to send her an assortment of brushes & palette knifes to use in art. I had this tin bucket and I white washed it with gesso and then glued pencils around the perimeter. But first I wrapped each pencil with the Golden Coast cardstock. Then added some pretty lace and a ribbon that was being held with BB April In Paris Doily. What would any project be without Reneabouquets flowers and butterflies to finish it off. 

And there you have it.... I hope my partner enjoys her mail and I hope this has inspired you to try something different when sending a surprise to a dear friend of your own. Below I have a process video so you can view me creating these items. Have a spectacular day !
