Meg’s Mini Books
By Definition: A book is a medium for recording information in the form of writing or images, typically composed of many pages bound together and protected by a cover. The intellectual content in a physical book need not be a composition, nor even be called a book. Books can consist only of drawings, engravings or photographs, crossword puzzles, or ‘cut & create ephemera’.
By Definition: Mini denoting a miniature version of something
Combine these 2: Meg’s Mini-Books are, therefore, made 6” high or less ie. 1/2 of a sheet of cardstock. They are much easier to make than large journals & also more economical. On top of that, they are lots of fun & very forgiving.
A new type of paper Collection has been designed especially for these mini books:
- A pack of 10 papers 8.5x11” (high-quality 300dpi, JPG format) containing:
4 background papers & 6 papers full of cut & creates in the same tones of the background papers. The cut & creates have been sized to fit the mini- books.
The first 2 of these collections are:
1.Periwinkle - Pantone’s color of the year 2022 - a fabulous color between purple & blue. #M530
2.Vintage - a favorite collection of shades of browns, beiges & blacks. #M531
The mini books can also use up those smaller pieces of cardstock, patterned papers & tea dyed papers.
