Do you have books on your gift list this year? We always love to give (and receive) books - especially craft and baking books. We have three titles today that would be suited for crafty types who like quick projects and creative activities.
Interesting and varied materials for the mini books include old hard cover books; playing cards; bingo cards; leather; wallpaper; and more to make lots of one-of-kind books. A basic toolkit is discussed, and then each project includes looks of step by step instructions, full sized templates, and photos to guide you through the process. We recommend this book for teens and adults who enjoy paper crafting. Some of the designs are super cute - especially the Seed Journal (made from vintage seed packets); Necklace Journal (to hold your secret hopes and dreams); and Record It (giving an old 45 LP Record new life as a journal cover).
Making Mini Books features dozens of inspiration and tips for making little books to use and to create for friends.
