hand bound birthday mini book

Hi there, lovelies! It’s Essie, back again with another mini book project. I can’t help it. I’m addicted to the things. My last one was bound with metal rings, but this one is hand bound. Here’s how I made it:



It was so wonderful to work with the ‘friendsgiving‘ digital kit. Liz obviously designed it for use at Thanksgiving, but it’s so easy to adapt for other friends-and-food related events.

I loved the way the gorgeous patterned papers formed such a perfect backdrop for my photos. Those purples and mustardy yellows were just glorious.

The project is relatively minimally embellished because the papers just do all the work. Where I did add accents and details, I kept it very simple. I had some gorgeous coordinated floral and phrase pieces from the embellishment kit which worked in perfect harmony with the random bits and pieces I pulled from my stash.

This mini book was a dream to put together, and I put that entirely down to having the exact right products for the job.

I’ll be back next month with something a little different. See you then!

    It’s pretty Essie. You never fail to amaze me with everything you do. Excited to make my mini handbound album soon. Thanks for sharing.
