Hello Simple Stories friends! Don't you love all the options we have for memory keeping these days? I love the variety and how each form is unique and work best for a specific case. Anya is here today and I would like to share with you yet another mini book that I created with the Summer Lovin' collection, in a form of stand with three little tag books! This is such a cute way to display your favorite summer photos right by your side! 



The front panel of this stand measures about 8.5” x 6.25” which is just a perfect size to hold three tag mini books and a space at the bottom for dimensional title and additional decorations. If you were to recreate a similar project, make sure your back panel is about 0.5” shorter, in order to keep the stand from tipping over. Also, the width of the bottom section is 2.5”. 



We are used to seeing tiny photos, since we've been sharing and checking friends' photos on Instagram. These three tag mini books can hold a whole lot of your favorite tiny photos, as well as little stories, but you can also store full sized photos between front and back panels of this stand. I created a couple of pockets and will be adding 4” x 6” photos there. 



Decorating similar project is a breeze. The tags, that were cut from the cut apart sheet with tags are pretty enough to leave as is, and the additional tag shaped pages that I cut from other patterned papers were decorated very lightly, since there's only so much you can add to such small format. Here are a few more examples of the pages inside, that are yet to be filled with photos:


Hope you were inspired today by this project and create something similar to surround yourself with happy sunny memories! Thank you for visiting and come back again for more inspiration.
