Altered Ruler Holder – May Challenge

Today Crew Member Monica Taylor show us how she blew new life into a item she found when out treasure hunting. Inspiered by our main May Challenge “Old is New” she transformed this piece of junk into something new and totally different!

Monica tell us: I love finding items at antique shops that I can alter. Bringing something back to life is such fun. I recently found this piece at a local antique shop and I immediately thought of the 7Gypsies Seamstress Collection and Architexture Vintage Sewing Machine to alter this item.

Monica share her transformation process with us using these products from Canvas Corp Brands: 7gypsies Seamstress Collection Patterned Papers “Seamstress” & “Spools”. Architextures Treasures Vintage Sewing Machine.

Step 1

Measure item to alter and cut pieces. Adhere pieces using Mod Podge.

Step 2

Add distress ink to edges of paper using your blending tool.

Step 3

Fill mini Jars with buttons and safety pins. Add remnant rubs to bottles. Add decorative items to collage box using your glue gun.

Finished project:

Have you entered your project for the May Challenge yet? There is two of them – one main challenge & one card only challenge.  If you have not submitted – here are the details on how to enter.



I live with my partner and my two children, in a small village the North of Sweden. I work as a Intensive Care Nurse (with Cardiology as speciality). My "style" is colourful and playful. I often use a lot of papers and embellishments. I try to have the photo in focus, and to reflect the feeling of the photo in the layout. I also makes cards and altered projects. If I would call my style something - well maybe Playful Punk Chic? (if i do a romantic layout, I can´t help giving it a playful twist...)
