Mini books

Over the weekend someone mentioned maze books so I had to look them up! Once I'd had a google, I couldn't resist trying to make one. Now I'm addicted!

This one I made out of a piece of 12 by 12 paper and used cereal box to make a cover. The stamp on the front is a piece I cut off a bookmark I made last week.




I decorated the pages and used tickets as tags to journal on. It's about three and a half inches now it's finished.


Then I found some smaller paper I got free with a magazine and tried it on a smaller scale.


I used some thicker paper for the covers.


I used my small Stampin' Up stamps to decorate the pages.


I'm so addicted! But at least now I know what everyone's getting for Christmas!

  1. A fabulous project - I love the pockets - they are perfect gifts! I would love one that was an organiser for next year with lots of pockets for all those coupons you get at the supermarket, somewhere for my receipts, etc. Great idea-thanks for sharing :)

  2. These are lovely, and look very effective now they are stamped up!
    Might have to have a go at this myself... :)

  3. That's lovely Monica. I looked up the instructions and it is quite straightforward really and I think it would be a bit more robust than the concertina books I have made. I think I have done something similar a few years back, but I didn't know that's what they were called. I like little books, so I shall have a go.
