Little Book Swap

For Lenna's latest Creative Swap we've been making little books. What type and how many, blank or filled it was up to us. For my books I used old cabinet cards for the covers and an assortment of vintage and new papers for the pages. I added a small glassine envelope to the back and tucked in some vintage red labels, a stamp and some Dresden foil scrap. I finished each of them with some hand dyed ribbon and a little trinket. I was recently given a Bind-it-all and decided this would be the perfect project to test it out. It was really easy to use and I like how the little books turned out. I had some left over muslin from my fabric paper project so I made each little book a muslin bag and tied them up with ribbon and paper flowers. This was such a fun swap project. You should go take a look at all the beautiful books that Lenna's been receiving. Maybe you'll be inspired to join the next swap!
