2 mini books

Daisy "speak" book

My little Daisy "speak" book all about the little words that she cant say properly or words that we use around her which all seem to have become part of our everyday language. Pages are 4"x4" covered in a cute daisy paper set freebie from a papercrafts magazine.

Toothfairy Box/accordian book
taken from the book Made in Minutes - Mini Books byRoxi Phillips. The instructions were to cover or paint a matchbox but I didn't have any around the house so I had to make one from scratch which isn't as easy as it looks. Then glue a piece of covered cardstock measuring 2 1/2" x 1 3/4" on both the top and bottom of the box. Fisx a brad to the front of the box to act as a drawer handle
For the accordian book cut a strip of cardstock measuring 2"x12" then score and fold at intervals of 1.5" to make a book with 8 pages for photos. Put a strip of patterned paper on the cover of the book measuring 1 1/4" x 1 3/4" and tie a ribbon round the book before attaching to the matchbox.
The cover of my little book has a teensy poem from the Toothfairy and inside is an equally teensy certificate from the toothfairy's first visit and there will also be a small satin bag holding Robyns teeth once I've made it
