Mini Book Fun

Sometimes you have to make something because you have been so inspired. A few nights ago my friend Lesley posted some links to You tube tutorials featuring some amazing mini books. I just had to have a go at this one.  If you read my blog regularly you will know that I am absolutely snowed under with papers and am trying to work my way through them. This was a fantastic stash busting project. I can't believe how lovely these papers look in this album, I had them on a pile to give away, but thought I'd make a rough version using them before I made a 'good' one. I'm so pleased with how it turned out I don't need to make another. I think you could get about 50 pictures in here, this what I've come up with:
 I need to decide what sort of closure I'm going to use
 and with the pages flipped up
the black card on the right are the tags that sit in the pockets, the yellow covered pages are actually a pocket where the tag pulls out sideways. I'll cover them with papers when I know what I'm putting in the book

You are using that phrase again "My friend Lesley" - how much you paying me to be your friend? Ha ha, only joking mate, you are a good friend and I am proud that you think of me as a friend. Love your little book, I am going to have to make one now.
