Ribbon,Roses,and Red

Today I have a quick altered project I did with some Really Reasonable Ribbon and lace.
While out shopping at a second hand store I found this album with page inserts.There was just a red quilted cover-much to plain for my liking.
There is one of my favorite laces Noelle White Crochet Lace and added a border to the front and the spine.
White Silk was perfect for me to add to the two covers and tie a bow-there are eyelets on each cover.
I just knotted one end and pulled through each eyelet.
Wanted to share a close up of the ribbon and grouping of Prima flowers and leaves.
Can you see the red pieces there? Guess what those are? The brads are from Lost and Found line.
I had those vintage earrings that just seemed to work with my design.and a Prima swirl finished it off.

So the next time you are shopping don't pass up those vintage books or items-you can use so many ribbons and laces to dress any item.
