Decos (Decorated or Made by Me)

DECO is a Decorated Friendship book.

I have been doing Decos for about a year now. I find them to be very fulling in the sense that I am creating a piece of art. I have never felt that I was very artsy but when I send out a finished deco I am usually pretty proud of how neat and pretty they are.
 
For those who are new to Decos - A Deco is a booklet, usually about 4"x5",  up to 5-6 pages inside with each page decorated with pictures, stickers, ribbons, etc to create an work of art for the person the booklet is made for.
 
There are commonly two types:
 
Sticker Decos (also commonly referred to as Sticker Slams) Upon receiving a Sticker Deco, you get to design a page with stickers and your mailing address. Most Decos are themed.

Cut Out Decos.Upon receiving Cut-out Deco, you get to design a page with pictures cut out of magazines and your mailing address. Most Decos are themed.
