mini book swap...

Michell Geller of Hold Dear hosted a mini book swap... I was so excited to play along! There were 27 of us and all we had to do was make one little book for each person. Oh wait- no need to panic! This was easy and fun...
Michelle had simple instructions for us to follow. We used a 'half sheet' of copy paper as the base and measured off 8 little rectangles. Each of the rectangles was a page in the book. And yeah, it looks like some of the little collages are upside down but... once you score, fold, cut and fold again- everything ends up the right direction. How clever is that? This 'master' gets copied for each book and voila! Tiny little books.

Of course I totally forgot to take a photo of all my books when they were done. Of course I did! This is why I seem to have such a hard time posting anything on my blog... But this gives you an idea of what it looked like- minus the tiny bakers twine that tied it all together.

Can't wait to see what all the other girls made!

I ALWAYS forget to photograph too. Especially when it's a "before and after", I get all done and realize I never did a "before" shot.

the books look fun and wonderful!
