The Penmaker and I have noticed
that the leaves aren't all changing at one time this year. Part have turned and falling in the wind and part are still as green as in summer. A strange autumn in our neck of the woods. All the more reason to make lots of bright, cheery fall projects! That's what I tried to do with this mini book that I made for Challenge #21 at Shopping Our Stash... "Spooky or Orange/Black".
Ever since I watched Tim Holtz
video of him making a mini valentine book, I have been smitten with these cute, tiny treasures. "So why not do one for this challenge", said I, and I did!
All you need is one 12 x 12 sheet
of DP... mine is My Mind's Eye Mischevious "Pumpkin Stripe". I finish mine a bit different than Tim does. After making several, I've found that if I adhere the pages with my tape runner and use a scrap of cardstock for a binder, it holds together much better than with just the tissue tape.
These are fun to embellish as
you don't need a lot on a page. Less is more in this case... if you keep it simple it's much easier to close.
Of the seven pages, three are pockets.
They are the perfect size for tea bags, gift cards, small photos or journaling tags.
Give this project a try the next time
you need a small gift item, and be sure to join this fun challenge at SOS.
