Making Books And Paper Mini's.
For quite a long time i have tried many times to make mini books and failed. I've looked at tutorials online, asked other mini makers, but never found the answer to making what i wanted.
So yestereday and today i've been really giving books a good go and quite happy with what i've achieved so far. Quite a lot of them have hit the bin but the last 3 stacks have worked and more than happy now.
Now i have the basics i can start thinking up covers more suitable for witches and wizards. The only thing is, good book covering at this scale takes time with all the tiny folds and creases.
Next i moved onto making some halloween gifts and although fiddly they dont take too long. I totally love them and happy with the look.
Then i moved onto making scrolls. Sabiha from http://sabsminiinteriors.blogspot.com/ recently send a parcel of gifts for Debbie. Inside was a beautiful mini which inspired me to make these.
Included are botanical, anatomy, potion and spell scrolls and quite happy with these too.
Since this time yesterday i've been chopping and sticking like a child, but happy at last i'm mastering working with paper minus the rips and tears that normally happen.
