A video tour of Penny's mini album

When Penny returned from Canada she had taken quite a few photos and had some sent to her from our Canadian relatives. She also had a fair bit of memorabilia too! So what is a Mum to do? A mini book of course!

I bought some instructions online and made this 6x8 mini book. It took me a couple of months all told, but I had fun doing it! The best way to show you all the parts is a video, so here it is! Please excuse the bit where I take the book out of shot! I haven't video'd using a tripod before, sure I will get better in time!
And here is the finished book looking at the top of it.
Penny is thrilled with it, so I am too!

PS Ruth has asked for a link to the blog I found this book. D'oh! I meant to put that in originally! You can find the blog here and I bought the PDF instructions from her shop here. I also bought her binding tutorial PDF which can be found here.

I'm such a fan of minibooks, and this one is fantastic with all it's pockets and flaps. I'm sure Penny will love this little treasure!

Now I'm not normally a mini book girl, but oh my I think this could change all that. This is gorgeous ... Well done and well done on the video too. I see a YouTube channel in your future x

What a super job you have made of this! Having all those hideaway places and little flaps and pull-outs makes each page so interesting and different, despite the common format. Nice to hear your voice!
