Papercraft Star - Altered Plaque

Hi there!

Time for a new photo inspiration challenge at Papercraft Star and this is what Jan has given us to work with this week 

How cute!

When I saw this photo ... especially that little boot ... I knew I had a charm somewhere in my stash and it reminded me of a story my friend Keren related on her blog Here  (not for the faint hearted)
So I made this for her ...

It started life as a plaque from a set of 3 I found reduced to £2 ... 

I preferred the woodgrain on the reverse of the plaque so I removed the letter (which will no doubt be used on something else) and pulled out the brass hook and after covering with DP I reinserted the hook to the other side...

 from thereon it just came together so quickly

I hope this inspires you to get out your charms and come and join us this week ... we would also welcome your comments at Papercraft Star ... Let us know what inspires you with photo challenges ... perhaps you prefer the colours ... maybe you like the detailed ones that give you plenty of scope ... 

We look forward to seeing you there

Have a lovely day!
