A (Quick to make!) Mini Book!

Yes, I still scrap a LOT.
I've done several things, but I'm just sharing one today!

I went to a baby shower not too long ago for a cute young girl.
This was her first baby!  A BOY.
I had to really hurry... I made it after work, in about 2 hours!
Luckily... I keep collections together in plastic folders!
I found one I had won at Craft Warehouse several years ago (5?),
that is by My Mind's Eye.  
The Laundry Line Collection... "Natural".
I used the embellies from this collection also,
along with a few other items I had.

And here it is!
I LOVE the 6x12" size mini...
so one can just pop in their 4x6 photos.
So I cut 6x12 bases from chipboard... and covered 'em with paper.

The cover is an acrylic sheet... with the 'Charlie' on it.
(protects the book a bit)

Here it is OPEN.


Just another pix with ribbon I added to the binding coils.
(The ribbon is dyed seam binding, that I have used before)

Inside the front cover:


I wanted room for lots of photos,
thus the little flip 'book' below. 

 Yeah... I know this pix is [really] blurry.  But it's the only pix I have!
Don't worry, following are two [clear] photos of the single pages.

Details (of the blurry pages)
And yes, the round embellie turns.  I added a cardstock circle to the back with the brad... then glued just the cardstock to the page! 

The next pages:

This was all so fast and EASY!  Yet, so CUTE!

The last set of pages.


I stitched the triangles on some raffia,
then attached it with the little pins! 

And lastly, the back of the book.
All the pages were just the paper (no chipboard).
My Mind's Eye paper is so heavy duty, 
they work perfectly as stand alone pages! 

...and that's all friends!

thanks for visiting!
