Mini books and Stick pins go together!!
I was involved in a pin swap over at Flying Unicorn and wanted to come up with a way to package the pins. Paulien over at Swirlydoos was my inspiration with the mini book that she linked us to over at Tim Holt's blog. (Click on "Valentine mini book".) These little books are wonderful because they just use one piece of patterned paper, and you can decorate them to your heart's content. They also have several little pockets that you can tuck things into, so they worked well for the pins. I ended up using 3 of my favorite paper lines (as I had 3 different books to make) from Close to my Heart: Florentine, Dreamin' (retired), and Sonoma (soon to be retired), and I also made a matching card. Florentine: Close to My Heart produces for each paper line. here for using a glue gun but I opted for the E6ooo glue instead.) They are a lot of fun to do, very economical, and you will be able to customize your cards and layouts in a whole new way. Ok. That's it. I hope you enjoyed this post. I'm off to enjoy a lovely summer day! Linda
