My 1st Mini Book

I was looking around some crafty sites at the weekend for a bit of inspiration and saw a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers for what they called a meander book. They used the Bind it all machine to hold together. There is also a video demonstration on docrafts for a maze book which is very similar, but tied closed with ribbon.



This is my 1st attempt and I am rather pleased with the finished mini book. It is made with one sheet of double sided 12x12 paper, I used a sheet from the K & Co neopolitan range and two 3x3 squares of pearlescent card for the front and back covers.
I made a few tags that either slot in the top or the side, out of another sheet of the same K & Co paper.
I decided to use ribbon, threaded through holes punched through every layer using a crop-a-dile to hold it all together.
The majority of embellishments are again from K & Co, along with lots of ribbon.
The last page has a pull out list of words that describe my beautiful daughter.

I think its quite fun and when I showed it to her she said "mum this is really cooool" so I think she liked it and she can't wait to show it to all her class mates at school.
After I showed it to the girls at work they all said they will get their photos together and asked me to make one for each of them. Looks like I'm going to be busy for a while.
