This December month I’ll post many projects on my blog, to give you some inspiration and ideas for your Christmas projects – and also to help you spend your holiday time creatively. In my previous post I showed you a quick Christmas Mini Album. Today: Part 2 of this December Deluge of creative ideas 🙂
There’s a particular 1-sheet mini photo wallet of which I’ve created several by now. It’s created from only one sheet of double-sided 12×12″ design paper, and it looks something like this:
If you click on the picture, it will link to my free video tutorial for that kind of mini wallet.
This week I’m showing you a new micro version of this design, created with a 6×6″ sheet of paper! So cute! They measure only 2⅜” (6 cm) and can hold little pictures, or you could write little notelets with personalized messages, as I have.
These are quick to make and would make great alternatives for your standard Christmas present tags 🙂
This little booklet is a cute alternative for a card: you can add little tags to write a personal message, and even add some photos or other nice pictures. So, Happy Birthday, or Happy Any Other Occasion! 🙂 It’s also a great alternative for using your scraps – next to, for instance, making scrap mats or other kinds of scrap decorations.
Of course you can make your own little booklet quite easily, feel free to come and get some inspiration from my tutorial for mini booklets if you’ve never made one yourself.
Anyway, here’s the video – P.S.: don’t forget to hit the like button underneath it! 😉
Although at the moment designing and creating mini albums, cards and altered objects are my main focus when it comes to paper crafting, I really like the occasional mini (or even micro) booklet as well. This one for instance, with its 1 5/8 x 2 1/4 inches (4,3×5,7 cm) is the tiniest I’ve created yet. And it still has pockets & tags! 🙂
The more I’m getting the hang of scrapbooking techniques, the more I’ve noticed that I really like designing and creating mini booklets. The tinier the better! They’re not just fun extras in your mini albums, they also make great alternative birthday cards! 🙂
I’m giving you a little “behind the scenes” action for one of my latest micro booklet birthday cards in the video below (click here if you don’t see it). This one I created for a guy, so there’s an extra bonus “gift idea for a guy” for you 😉
And there’s more: At the end of this blog post there’s a free Snapguide tutorial, which will guide you through the proces step-by-step!
I particularly like how it perfectly fits in one of the drawers of the altered drawer box I showed you in one of my previous posts, turning it into a perfect companion piece to go with it – especially since I used the same Graphic 45 design paper stack!
Here’s a cute little booklet of my own design, in the bright summer colours of Uptown Flair design paper by The Paper Studio.
Useable as a gift card holder, or simply as a card holder just like I’m doing here, just using the entire thing as a birthday card.
No distressing this time, just a few embellishments without overdoing it.
