Tutorial – Altered Lamp – Sandpaper Road

Today I share with you a way to give your home new beauty with Craft O’Clock papers! Simply covering a lamp with the “Vintage Treasure” paper collection creates a stunning, feminine look.

I used the 12″ x 12″ (30,5 cm x 30,5 cm) “Vintage Treasure” paper collection, but if your lamp is smaller, you can certainly use smaller collections or the rice papers on the lampshade instead.

Simply trace the shape of your lampshade, cut, and use a gel medium to adhere!

Then roll pieces of the paper to accent the edges. Use chipboards, twine, metal, and “extras to cut” for embellishments.

Enjoy the full video tutorial to see how I created my new lamp!

Tutorial | TONIC Base Creator Die Set | Sandpaper Road

Walk with me through my latest mini-album project! I purchased the Base Creator Die Set by Tonic and I couldn’t wait to use it!

The paper I chose to use for this project is the “Plum in Chocolate” paper collection by Craft O’Clock. I absolutely LOVE this collection with its dark, decadent colors. I also used the “Basic Papers #4” Collection, also by Craft O’Clock

I created a spine for my mini-album using Tonic’s Keepsake Book Maker Simple Spines Die Set, which coordinates with the Base Creator Die Set. I love using the spine die because you can customize the number of hinges just by die cutting additional pieces and adhering them together.

To create the outside cover, I used the second-largest “flap” die in the set and cut the front and back. I positioned the die on the paper so the edge with the “flap” would have LOTS of extra paper hanging off. That way, I could trim it to fit later.

Using my score board, I scored an additional line on the “flap” side of the cover piece. This line needs to be scored between the “flap” and the dotted line, just next to the dotted line. Fold on the score line.

I adhered the front cover to the spine and trimmed off the excess paper. Then, I adhered the back cover to the spine and trimmed off the excess paper.

You might find it helpful to watch my video tutorial for this project. You can watch it HERE:

For the pages, I chose one die size smaller than the cover size. Also, make sure you are using the “flap” die and not the “inside” die. You can use the “inside” die later on when you are decorating the pages.

For each page, cut two flap pieces. Place a piece of Scor Tape on the flap of each piece, but DO NOT remove the release paper yet. After the tape is in place, adhere the two page pieces together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive glue and let dry. I only use a thin line of glue around the outside edges and it holds just fine.

To fit the pages on the hinges, use a pick tool or tweezers to reach in and pull the release paper off ONE of the flaps. Fit the page over the hinge and press. When the page is secure, reach in and pull off the other piece of release tape and press.

Decorate the album pages as desired (this is the fun part)!
