AIW Mini book

Morning all.
I hope you're all enjoying the unseasonable sunshine, I know I am.

Today I'd like to share a little mini album I made for a swap, held in a facebook group I'm part of . The brief for the swap was "no more than 6 inches" but can be any project you can dream up. Tag, ATC, Card, Altered item, Book ..... anything. Well this little book measures 6" x about 4" but it is also quite deep. The recipient has received it now, so I can share.

Many pictures follow so I hope you'll bear with me.
The papers are all from Vectoria Designs from their Alice in Wonderland collection. Other bits and bobs from stash. The bookplate on the spine is from Tando Creative.




inside cover with page one
you can also see the string on each of the inserts between the main pages for private journaling. this is possible because the base of each page is card folded to form a double open ended sheet. One end is adhered to the spine page holders leaving the other end open.
