50 ideas to add in your altered book

paste in: pockets, envelopes, candy wrappers, fortunes from the cooky, feathers, hair (some people will say that is gross, I know), your best doodles from your notebooks, pretty found items from nature or urban life, fabric scraps, safety pins, teacher's stars, color copies of your photos, magazine pictures that you have messed with (or not messed with), ribbon, rhinestones, baker's twine, leaves, ticket stubs, postcards, pretty paper.

Handmade paper dolls, and handmade paper doll clothes, buttons, vintage ephemera, old stamps, butcher or sandwich paper, coin envelopes, shapes cut from torn out pages (colored to contrast can look nice)

To do lists in pencil, decoupaged decorated napkins, handmade paper flowers, vellum (layers and layers are fun), blank tags that you decorated, tags from your purchases that someone else designed, wee little mirrors, seeds and spices, google eyes, little spindly twigs, slides, butterfly wings, wires, corrogated cardbaord, sushi grass, sequins, dots from the hole puncher, thin wooden comb ( Ijust thought of that and want to try it!), text cut from other sources.......
