Uses for ACEOs (Mini Altered Art Pieces)

I got into creating ACEOs last year and was instantly hooked. You can create a little piece of art in no time at all. I like to experiment with different embellishments and lately have been really enjoying using image transfers on my ACEOS. Most of them come from images that I see in magazines.

There are so many things that you can do with ACEOs including, but not limited to:
  • Turn it into a magnet and display on your fridge or memory board for daily inspiration
  • Frame it and group with other ACEOs for a very pleasing wall display or frame alone and sit on your desk
  • Attach it to the front of a plain greeting card, the recipient will love it especially if you attach with velcro so that they can still have access to the ACEO later to display as they wish
  • Use as a bookmark
  • Use as place settings at parties and the guests can take them home later as party favors
  • Set in a pretty box on a coffee table for guests to enjoy (just make sure that they are in plastic sleeves to protect from damage
Great books on the subject:
