Miniature books

Miniature books

Ok, so I finally got hold of the camera so I could take a picture of the things I have been doing the last few weeks.

Miniature books! 26 in total. The books are 2,5 x 3,2 centimeters. But the pages themselves are 2,2 x 2,9 centimeters.

Now I just need to write something in them. 🙂 Good for me I have a tiny handwriting when I need it. But I don’t think I have room for many words on each page…

It was fun going through my old scrapbooking materials and choosing papers for the covers.

The most difficult thing was to sew the pages. But after some books it got easier to do it. There are a total of 58 stitches per book if I remember correctly.

Instructions how to make the books can be found in a book called “Microcrafts. Tiny treasures to make and share”. It’s from 2011, edited by Margaret McGuire and others.

The books were supposed to have a belt too around them, made of a thin strip of paper. But I decided not to make those belts.
