WOYWW 1 September 2010


What is on my workdesk…isn’t.  I’m taking some time out with the kids but, in true Blue Peter fashion, “here’s one I prepared earlier!”

Last week I did a small (3 “) mini book using a scalloped circle punch.  This week I have another one, using a scalloped square.  Although the punch says 3″ the punched shape is not much more than 2″ – it’s really small!  Both use the punch-off-the-fold technique I used for the banner a few weeks back. The circle one has some sewing on it but the square uses a different technique – just glue and ATG.

I added the Distress Ink pad so you can see in an instant just how small these minis are.

Also, as I know not everyone likes watching YouTube and pausing to catch up or to make notes, for the square one I did a PDF you can download instead. As this is a scheduled post, I’ll add it to the other PDFs on the sidebar after it appears (it’s there now!) and you can also download it by clicking here!

I may miss out on visiting and commenting this week, but if I find myself with some time free I’ll do my best.  Next week, when the more demanding child (DD) is back at school it should all be a whole lot easier!

Happy WOYWW to all!

  8. I do love your mini-mini albums. Enjoy your free time!!!

  9. Those mini books are lovely but seriously small, I’d be going cross eyed! I think someone told me that those lever punches measure across the diagonal for their stated size, but I could be wrong. Happy crafting when the kids go back to school, parents everywhere will heave a collective sigh!!

  22. Both of these mini books are gorgeous. The circle one is really feminine, but the square one could be for anyone, I think. Hope your week slows a bit, but if now, we’ll understand. Have a happy WOYWW.
