Good morning Bloglanders
I hope you are well!! Spring in sunny SA is awesome. I'm getting up earlier to have a walk around my neighborhood - don't want to miss out on all the beauty. So, before I go, my project for the day.
When I showed you the mini album made out of 1 piece of A4 paper I also included an idea to replicate them and make it into mini Birthday Books. (Click here if you missed out)
So, I got going. This time my book is A5. Yes, really, really small AND my Silhouette did the cutting for me! If you want the cutting template - just grab it here. I made it myself and all the folding lines are dotted and Silhouette will even cut the rest. For folding instructions, click here. If you use A4 paper - just duplicate and move / re size if you want a bigger book. (2 for the effort of 1)
I've added paper and embellishments done with my Silhouette as well as journaling. Then everything was copied - this will become my B-Day bash stash. Before I fold it, I'll do some stitching, add a bit of dimension with a pop-up sticker (ex Silhouette once again) and a personalized note to the back. I don't have "cookie cutter" friends! And this is what my copy looks like: (you can see that the stitching and dimensional stickers are still outstanding)
I did all this with my Silhouette as part of their birthday celebrations but my other posts showed how to do it "manually" - just as straightforward but HETTE does save a lot of time and I love making my own embellishments!
That's it. I'll including some "work in progress" pics at the bottom of my post later today if want to have a peek. (iPhone is still charging) Have a great day and thanks for visiting my blog today.
