Sweet Little Booklet

This sweet picture is from
Renae at
My Little Raggedy Blessings Blog
and this is the direct link to wonderful pictures for us to use.
My Little Raggedy Blessings Pictures.
Thank you Renae!!!

I did my cover (no pic of this part)
and then cut 5 little sheets of paper to fit inside.
(cut pages a bit smaller than cover).
I stamped the corners of the pages lightly,
(click pic. to see better)
then laid them out on the inside cover and stapled on the seam.
Fold the booklet closed and press on seam to flatten a bit.
Then I added trim and a little key.
My booklet is only about 3x4",
but you could make it any size.
These booklets would be nice token gifts for a special friends,
for them to fill with little thoughts, or you could add
some special notes or scriptures to it your self.
Other ideas?????

Here are some other cute pics you will find
at My Little Raggedy Blessings.

Be sure if you make anything from my ideas
or tutorials (see side bar) to let me know so I
can share with my friends here.

Blessings all

A long distance reader, what a joy for me. Thank you for your kind words. I'm curious how you found me.
Of course I can try to get google translater on my sites. And I try writing a bit in english on my main site also.
You have fantastic blogs yourself. I think I have visited here before.

Oh course you can take the idea for the tags. I would love it if you would. My husband now thinks I buy the clothes just for the garment labels.LOL!
Thank you for your visit. Made my day!

I'm peeking Barbara make my books the same way, but I sew down the spine with my sewing machine instead of putting staples in. Then; I put crinkle ribbon around the centre and the outside of the book. I haven't made any tiny books before, but you have inspired me to make some now. Thankyou for sharing.
Many Blessings
