Teeny tiny treasures

A teeny tiny mini book made from envelopes.
I am planning on this as a class so if you are local and interested, let me know and I will sort out some dates. 

 The front cover

I used gorgeous Melissa Frances papers throughout. 

Half of the 'pages' have little pockets for tags.

Some of the words have been stamped others are stickers.

All the slide mounts have been sanded stamped and inked.

The pages are all only 4 inches in size so all the details are tiny. I adore working in miniature, my natural crafting size is 12 x 12 inches as I am predominantly a scrapbooker so I find it really fun to shrink everything down to suit a much smaller scale.

The butterfly is a little wooden laser cut which I have coloured with chalk ink.

All the pages have been inked with Sahara Sand chalk ink by Versamagic

There are 5 envelopes in total which provides 10 sides to decorate.

The  flourish design on this page was already on the patterned paper, I just highlighted the lovely curve with some liquid pearls.

This gorgeous leaf is a Marianne design die, the tag shape is also Marianne and the ribbon was a gift from Anita

And here it is all finished.

The boys both go back to school tomorrow. It will be AJ's first day at the academy. It is going to be a wrench, for me, not him, the boy is all good, but mummy is in bits. They grow up too fast !
