Altered Rotary Telephone Recap

Hi, all. This is Darcie. I am preparing for our show tomorrow and thought I'd post some pics from the January episode where Johnna, Mom and I altered rotary telephones and made them into baby wipe holders for our mixed media projects. If you saw the show, you know that when you lift the dial, the baby wipes come through the opening.

We also made an adorable address book based on a vintage marketing piece that was made to hang by your phone.  A little difficult now in the age of smartphones! The lovely Pavla from Pavlart on Ustream won this phone:

This is the one we made on the show. I was so determined to use a princess phone because they are so adorbs, but it was challenging. I ended up cutting the baby wipe bag in half to fit and it is so cute! It now sits on my desk and is very handy when I need to grab a baby wipe. You could also use this for tissues. There is a pencil that goes into the handset and on the other end, if you unscrew the earpiece, there is a cup for paper clips and brads.

As promised, HERE and HERE are the pdfs of the address book that you can print out and make for yourself. It is in two parts so that the pages can be printed double-sided to make up the inside of the book. I used a 5/8" circle punch to make the tabs, so they are not on the template. You can choose to do that or not.

Next up is what you will need for tomorrow's show!
