Earthy Mini Book

I found the idea for this fun little min book from Lisa Johnson at Poppy Paperie and I just had to make one of my own. You may have noticed that I love doing 3D stuff, and small gift items and this was just right up my alley! I do need to go buy some more Velcro though :-)

On the spine I used some of that delicious Victoria crochet trim and secured it with a Glimmer Brad over the center and poked through the card stock.

Inside I alternated the images on the edge of each page. There are 12 pages in this mini book so it could be a little pocket calendar, or a passwords book, or a contacts book, or a mini scrapbook.... the possibilities are endless! This may end up going to my Earth child daughter, who LOVES mushrooms :-)

I wasn't sure about the combination of the pearls and rhinestones at first, but they have grown on me, lol! Good thing, because they are really stuck on there! I put a strip of Sticky Strip under the flap and gathered the crochet trim along the edge to dress it up a little more.
  • Stamps: Funky Four
  • Paper: Wild Wasabi
  • Ink: Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso
  • Other: Corner Rounder punch, paper cutter with scoring blade, Victoria crochet trim, Brights Glimmer Brads, Rhinestone and Pearl Basic Jewels, Signo white gel pen, Sticky Strip
Now let's see what you make! Post a comment and link to yours so we can see what YOU do with this project!
