This week is “collage minibook week” here at These Small Hours.
Here is what I said yesterday: I’ll share a really simple minibook that is fun to make & fun to give! Right now I am calling it a “collage minibook” because 1) I am horrible at giving things titles; and 2) that’s what stuck in my head when I first began making them. In some ways it is more like an interactive card than a mini album, so maybe I should call it a mini-album card? A card collage mini album? Oh who knows!
Back in April, my favorite paper company ran a contest centered on a ‘color collage’ theme. At the time, I had been feeling so inspired from oh, hello friend’s book of notes — so, so beautiful & unique! (There is a store! with book of notes kits!) I had also become intrigued by another form of memory keeping, Heidi Swapp’s memory files. So many layers! I drew inspiration from both of these concepts and made a simple (that’s the way I roll) mini album from them.
Today I’m sharing the second collage minibook I made for one of my favorite & most influential mothers in my life, who happens to also be my best friend–my sister. : )
Tomorrow I’ll share the tutorial for how I made Mand’s!
