Lisa here with the last day of Jenni Bowlin Mini Madness week. I worked with the September 2013 Papercrafting kit. When I was planning on what my minibook would consist of I saw that the 30 days of lists were going to start on March 1st and that was that; a 30 lists mini it would be!
Here is a look at the finished book. I had pre planned pretty much all the design for the inside pages.
The book is made with just patterned papers. I trimmed the 12x12" papers to 6x12" and simply folded the pieces in half. For the binding I used 2 staples. I first poked holes for the staples with my craft needle and simply pushed the staples in those and closed them.
For the cover I just played with the great things in the kit. The stamp works as a base and then I just added the letter stickers and embellsihments.
I wanted to use tags on each page for the lists. There were a few tags in the kit, but I decided to cut mine from the cardstock in there instead. I cut them all out and added a small punched out circle from a black paper in the kit to the tag before I punched a whole.
This is how they turned out! That black circle makes all the difference, no?
Here are a few quick looks inside. I knew the list topics since it is a paid event and printed each list as a strip. One of the girls doing the challenge made a pdf with numbers so I cut those out aswell.
Then I started listing! I have done this project before I knew i would like it!
I love the chunky feel that this mini has! And i hope that it will inspire you to make something like it!
