Todays WOYWW is all about a mini-book I’ve been working on. Based on a template for something completely different (a folding Flower CD case) it went from this:
How it come in to play: I was looking for a flower shape to use as a template for a completely unrelated project and this popped up. I was pretty intrigued by the idea of a CD case that folded down from a flower so I downloaded the PDF.
How it came in to play: I was looking back at a very old layout, one of my first published ones, and the bit of the quote that I used on it made me go looking for more by Alan Beck. Instead of NEW ones I found a much expanded version of the OLD one. And it’s a corker!
How it came in to play: I unearthed a kit Shimelle put together for a GoGo retreat, I think, that I was meant to get a few extra bits from her to finish (a few more embellishments and the INSTRUCTIONS LOL!) Loved the kit, no idea how to make theoriginal project, but it worked a treat for this one!
I’d best snap a quick wider view for you, so I am not accused of hiding my shame thru careful cropping!
