Making mini's for mum

Hi there bloglanders

This was suppose to be my post for "mini Monday" but then all my Valentine's Day projects got in the way. Actually, I wanted to show you a layout today but the one I did, still needs a title and until I come up an original one, it will stay on my craft desk.

These are the little books I made for my mum’s friends. She is 74 years old and an eager photographer. All the pictures and quotes came from her. I did the layout in Photoshop and had it printed on ordinary paper (thicker than normal copy paper) and laminated (they are going to be used a lot!). The pages are kept together with an ordinary key ring and I added a laminated heart shape and some ribbon.  

I even gift wrapped them for my mum – tissue paper, dictionary page, ribbon and a scrap flower.  I love these flowers and will show you how I make them in tomorrow's post. All our cereal boxes gets cut up and recycled into scrap flowers.

Here they are packed and ready to be delivered- all 20 of them!

I hope you enjoyed our play date. Please check back tomorrow and we will play with the DIY scrap flowers. 

Tip of the day:  I saw the very best method to print directly onto tags today.  You can check here if you want to know too.
