Altered Items to Match My Recipe Box

Do you remember the altered recipe box I made the other week with my Nook and Pantry paper kit? Well...I wanted to add a few more items to match to give as a gift to my mother-in-law for Christmas. My dear friend Izzy, gave me the idea of altering a coupon keeper and I had already decided I wanted to alter a little note book but was reminded by Izzy about including a pen to match. The R.S.V.P. pens are perfect for this. You can pick them up at any local office supply store. I also altered a little day planner to go with this set. Thanks Izzy for your abundant inspiration!

Here's a photo of the notebook and matching pen,
Here's a photo of the coupon keeper,
And here's a photo of the altered pocket day planner.
And finally, here's a photo of them all together. I'm really pleased with how they all turned out. I think they'll really look cute in my mother-in-law's kitchen. They're totally her style!

Be sure to check out your Michaels for items you can alter! They make great gifts! Thanks for stopping by :)
