Sandy - Liz Mini Book

It's Sandy sharing my handmade gift idea today. It's a little mini-book created by folding one piece of A4 paper. The book is held together by gluing down the accordian-fold spine. I added the stitching as an embellishment and made a slip-cover for it.

Mine has a theme similar to the Gratitude Album Lindsey showed you this week. I spelled out a Thank You message across it's ten inside pages.

This project combines many things I love :
  • paper construction
  • playing with fonts
  • layering embellishments


If you'd like to try your hand at making one of these, I'll be posting the tutorial on 20th December. In the mean time look in the Christmas Store for a 'hardworking' paper. One that has a variety of patterns, colours and designs. You can add photo booth strip-sized pictures with a couple of journal labels and have a mini-album completed in a hurry.
