Mini Tag Book Swap

The pictures below are from the Mini Tag Book I made for a swap.  The finished book is 6 inches by 2 1/4 inches.  Lots of fun!  The mini book entitled "Just Saying" is all about bugs,  starting with the Bee.  It has 6 tags finished front and back and has a beaded binding.

I just figured out how to add pages to the blog so the pictures of the tags are in the Mini Tag Book pages tab at the top of this blog.

See Mini Tag Book Page tab at top for more pictures

Mini Books - Hidden

Hidden album/mini books. 

On the right hand side of this blog you will see a link to "Paper Trail."  The curio Cabinet below is from Laura's pattern.  I just cut the pattern pieces down by 1/2.  The pencil in the picture is a normal pencil.

The min album is hidden in the drawer.

I showed this to a friend who challanged me to do another cabinet but fancier with curves etc.   I wasn't quite ready for that.  Instead I used the same type of construction and made a Grandfather Clock with Mini book, ATC storage and a secret compartment on the top.

Final Dimensions are 10 inches high, 3 1/4 deep and 2  5/8 wide.

My cat Georgie likes to be involved with every thing!  Giving a final inpsection.

Mini Books - Tile Display

Mini Books - I've always loved books (at least since after the 1st grade).  I also love miniatures, so mini books fit right in.

This starts a series of posts/pictures on mini books that I have made since retiring.  Finally getting around to downloading the pictures.

Mini books to store and or display your Zentangle Tiles.

Rather than explain the mini book above I've included a link to the Youtube video that I learned the technique from.   All I did was shorten the pockets and tabs a bit for the Tiles.

Then from Cherryl Moote's book  All Tangled Up come these minis.

 I'm available to teach any of these minis.  Or if you want to work a deal for a ready to go book, just ask.
