You all know how much I LOVE to embellish my junk!!!  I added gold glitter to the fan and pieces of rhinestone jewelry for a earring and bracelet. 
It was easy to turn the cover into a portfolio.  I cut the three sides, then hole punched and looped ribbon through one side for the binding.  Large scrap book papers fit perfectly inside. Another hole on the opposite side allows me to loop a ribbon through and tie a pretty bow to seal my portfolio.
I decided to  make a tiered display stand with the records I received.  I simply glued drawer pulls to the bottom record for feet and then used the pieces from an old china display piece I had to create a two-tiered stand. 

I absolutely LOVE the album cover Sue sent me for the record challenge and wanted to use it for some type of display piece so I created a portfolio using it as the cover.  My new "junk portfolio" will hold pictures of my junk projects that I can show to potential buyers.

I created a two-tiered display piece out of the records.

Well, you've done it again. It's amazing how you can take a plain old anything and turn it in to something divine and elegant! Beautiful projects!

Take care,

And great idea to use it as a portfolio. It will be most impressive (along with what's inside)! And I've never seen albums look so elegant...the feet were the topping on the cake. Again, beautiful!

shabbychick writes: Janis - your signature elegant style - beautiful! Love the portfolio idea (it just gave me an idea for something too!). And your 2-tier stand is so sweet (love the little knobs/feet - gotta have some feet for a little waltz, right??)

Well done! Kathy Posted: 9:52 am on June 1st
