Hello everyone! Anya here today and I am happy to share a little travel project that might come handy to take along on your next trip or to record the memories of your recent adventure. I never get tired of little mini books, they are fun to create and are able to include all the photos you want!
For these arrow-shaped mini books I used the Going Places collection and a simple arrow cut file. With the help of a digital cutting machine it's easy to make a couple of books at once. How awesome it would be if we can write our stories in one of them and let our children fill the other one with the stories from their points of view. It's amazing how different we see things sometimes.
I like to use plain cardstock for the base of my pages and overlay each page with patterned paper. This way it make the pages a little sturdier and I always appreciate a thing white border. For me mini book don't require too much planning, which make it a rather simple project to create.
When I am making a mini book ahead of time, I don't decorate every single page, leaving myself more options in photo placement and story telling when time comes to fill the book, but a few photo flips are a must, since we always bring a lot of pictures back.
Hope this will inspire you to make a mini book if you haven't made one recently.
