Two roses have been made out of the pages of "The Secret Garden". They stand on a painted wooden base under a glass dome. The butterfly on the base is also made from "The Secret Garden". Dome stands approximately 9" high by 6" wide. Glass dome is removable.

I'm not sure this can be called a book alteration, but since I used left over pages from a previous alteration, I'm going to go with it.

Shakespeare's characters take the stage in this book alteration. Illustrations depict scenes from "The Taming Of The Shrew", "The Merchant Of Venice", "Much Ado About Nothing", "As You Like It", "All's Well That Ends Well", and "Love's Labor's Lost". The characters stand on three stages, with others watching in the audience.

Yes, the edges cut inside of the book are a little rough, but I like it. It gives the alteration an "old" feeling, for lack of a better word. The book's pages were really not much thicker then tissue paper. When you're trying to fit multiple Shakespeare plays in one book I suppose you have to make the pages as thin as possible. Not easy to work with, but I like the overall effect.

The book altered is "The Works of Shakespeare: The Comedies" 1950.
