Mini Books....make the perfect gift!

Ok, this book I just made, well, it ROCKS!  I needed to make a
project for an upcoming private class & just wasn't feelin' the
love...then yesterday it finally struck me....I need to make a book
about things that bring me joy...and so I did.  And here it is:

Now, how do you start a book like this you might ask?  Well, I
made a list of 12 little things that bring me joy.  Then I ran
around town this morning & took photos for the project...some of
them I had, but most I took today.  Here's my list:

The book is made up of 4 sheets of 12x12 cardstock.  I cut them
into 4x12 strips, scored & folded them & then glued them
together (it'll be a class in January).  Stop by the store &
I'll show you how to do it if you'd like to make them for
Christmas.  It has 3 double sided print papers & 12 4x6
photos.  Oh my, it was FUN to make!  Just took a couple
hours...which led me to thinking that it would make a perfect album for
holiday gifts!  I drew my sister in law's mother for our gift
exchange & I'm going to make her one of these with her 2 grandson's
in it.  Here are some other ideas:  friends, 10 things I love
about you, my favorite places to visit, things I'd like to do (like that
1000 places to see before I die book)...the possibilities are
ENDLESS!
