I love miniatures, always have, and when I saw these mini book covers from Beadaholique, I had to try working with them. I measured the little metal book covers and tore paper the same size. I wanted torn edges rather than cut ones thinking it added to the sweetness. I lined up the covers with the pages and punched tiny holes. Jump rings were perfect to bind the covers and pages together. And really, the pages could be anything – snippets of photographs, ribbon, fabric, you name it. I chose a velvety white paper.
Part of the beauty of these little covers is the fact that they can be embellished so many different ways. I used a couple of tiny bits of ribbon. (Yes saving those small pieces does pay off!) I added a little coin charm, a trio of beads, and hung it on a beautiful chain that matched the color of the book covers.
Here are my tiny pages ready for deep but brief thoughts.
