Mini Book for your Favourite Songs !

Hello !  Gorgeous sunny afternoon here in Worcestershire - a lovely early Autumn feel to the air too ! 
One thing I am really good at is starting projects and leaving them unfinished ; this is not a good trait , so I am trying to be good and get them finished and I did just that today with this mini book which was started way back in June !!!! The book is made using a circular Bigz die and I used some robust recycled card for the base. 

It is easier to cover your card with your designer paper first and then let it dry thoroughly and die cut it in one go - you get a neater edge too and then I usually sand the edges just to finish off.

Anyone who knows me well will tell you that I am a big fan of the late and great Luther Vandross and I play his music constantly ( much to the annoyance of my family !!! Some people have no music taste ! LOL ! ). The words to his ballads are so beautiful and this song " Little Miracles " is one of my many favourites ! This project was done for a class and the idea was to gift the finished item to a loved one as a keepsake. The verses are out of order so I could show you each page ! 

I used a simple piece of twine to pull it together and added simple flowers and leaves to embellish . The key thing for me was to choose a nice font and paper to print out the words to the song. I chose to print on a cream parchment paper !

The finished mini book ! This is for me to keep, but you could use this idea to gift some beautiful quotes to a son or daughter for a 21st or 18th birthday . The book measures about 4 inches in diameter and I have of course inked the edges for definition, as usual !
Thank you for stopping by to take a look ! Must finish the rest of my projects now but fancy doing some Autumn themed cards too - so many lovely inspirational ideas out there in blogland !

  1. What a wonderful idea - and yes, what a lovely keepsake for someone leaving home perhaps. Vicky x

  2. this is lovely Jane - I'm a bit like you for starting projects like this but leaving them unfinished. Sometimes I can't bear to add my photos and cover up the lovely paper I've used! - Jacqueline xx
