Alter Something.... my new mirror!



This weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge fits in beautifully with a project I planned in my head yesterday... the challenge is 'Alter Something'.... Yesterday I nipped into Ikea to have a looksie at the new fabric range they have in and I found a square wooden mirror laying around and i thought it might be quite useful to have so I can look at jewellery on as I'm making it... then I found a dress in primark for £1 and the fabric was perfect for covering my little mirror!
I've used:
  • Ikea 97p wooden mirror
  • Blue bows and dots fabric- primark dress
  • Chunky white buttons- primark dress
  • Chunky white satin ribbon
  • Small white buttons
  • 2 blue buttons
  • Large white flower
  • Glass pearls
  • Tigertail
  • Hot gluegun

Love your mirror, the white buttons on he blue look great. A dress for a £1 what a bargain and you didn't have to worry about it being you size, added bargain. you probably have loads left over to make some more matching altered items. Thanks for joining in.
