Joy's Life Mini Books Blog Hop


 Welcome to Joy's Life's Mini Books Blog Hop!  These books can take a little time to make but they are worth the effort.

  If you came over from Kimberly then you are in the right place.  If you happened to stumble across this post and want to start hopping from the beginning, you can do so here.

 I had thought about using one of my cutting machines for my book but instead remembered a book that I had made in a class several years ago at my LSS.  


Here's my latest mini. (The stamp on the cover is from Joy's Yummy Puns set.)


Here's a shot of the book opened up. (Sorry about the glare in the pic!)


I got to use several of Joy's fun stamps for this project.  These pages feature stamps from Joyful Hearts and Yummy Puns.


Wintery Puns and You're So Punny provided the stamps that I used for the last two pages of the book.


Here's how I made it.  I cut two pieces of chipboard for the covers at 3.25" square.  I then cut a piece of pink card stock at 3"x12"for the inside pages.  That piece was then scored every 3".  I decorated my book with Joy's stamps and some really cute stickers I bought at Hobby Lobby.  (If you are hard pressed for time, this is a way to create a quick book.)  I then attached some ribbon to the chipboard and taped the pages to create the book.

I hope you enjoyed my Mini-book and it inspires you to make one for someone you love!
