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
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
This 3rd page is added with a tab
|Inside the back cover|
Hope this mini book gives you lots of ideas for Christmas Gifts
Bye for now
