Fabric Mini Book

Happy Monday! I've been anxiously waiting to share this little mini album with you! I just love the October Bad Girls Couture Kit. Have you checked out their kits? They are fabulous! I was inspired by these colors and the kit has a few of these colors in a deeper hue. I added a touch of gold to make these colors pop!

I used the packaging from the 7gypsies tins as inserts for the mini book. This mini album is 3"x3". I love making this size mini because it's super easy and it works great for those of you who can't seem to throw your scraps out. Hey, I am not picking on you... I am the same way!



I used gesso to adhere the fabric to the packaging to use as theand back of the mini book. I cut several pieces of patterns from the Prima Paper to use as inserts and photo mats for the mini.



Once the gesso was somewhat dry, I used scissors to cut the excess fabric from the edges.



And because I am always looking for ways to save trees and recycle... I cut the little words from the packaging to use as embellishments for the mini album.


 
Here are my little pages.
 



 
Here are a few close-ups:
 














I used my Bind-It-All to bind the pages together. I can't remember the last time I used it. I finally dusted it off and put it to good use.


 
I used a little piece of transparency... sparingly. I am hording the rest.
 

 
The photos are all 2"x2" (maybe a little smaller).
 




And here is the cover. Nothing too fancy... I wanted to keep it simple!



Remember, the next time you are about to throw those scraps away... you can maybe make a little mini book instead! They make great gifts.

Thanks for stopping by today!
