Mini Christmas Book

Hello Bloggers
This is a great gift idea for Christmas.
Plenty of space for pics, notes, comments from guests as well as the menu
There is no fancy binding. The front & back cover use chip that is 6.25"; the pages are vanilla cardstock 6"square; the distress ink is frayed burlap

Front cover uses a piece from S116 - The Musical Christmas Collection
 Since the mini packs papers are 145mm square they are perfect for 6" pages. The note to Dear Santa is foam mounted; the list for Santa is rolled & attached at the side; half of a Christmas vine is tucked under the Dear Santa note & a key hung from the vintage trinket knob. 

Inside the front cover & page 1
 The mini book uses the Correspondence Collection mini pack for its base papers.  The coloured Santas are from Vintage Christmas Santas ATC047 & are the perfect size for this book. The other half of the Christmas vine is used here along with 2 vintage filigree trinkets. Plenty of room on the left for tags & pics

pages 2 & 3
 There are pockets on both pages.  The collage images used here are from Old Fashioned Christmas on Green #3293.  I added a red organdy ribbon here to allow a bow on the front for decoration & also to highlight the hanging embellishment - 2 jingle bells & a message bottle containing a secret note to Santa.

pages 3 & 4
 More pockets again - page 3  used the Correspondence Collection with a tag inside the torn paper.  The right hand side has a pocket using a paper from the Musical Christmas Collection mini pack

page 5

This page has a magnet closure & opens up using the lock

inside page 5
 Open up the left side & across the inside of page 5 are 3 pages with pockets:  These 2 pages are made from a 12x6" cardstock
