Crafty Monday Night

My mini book template

Last night I stayed up late and joined in a virtual Craft Night in the Etsy labs. The project for the evening was 'mini books'. So while I sat at home in my Pj's folding paper, a group of keen crafters were sitting doing the same and discussing their dinner plans in the Etsy labs in Brooklyn!



Last night I made my fist mini book using a magazine page and stuck white stickers on it to write on. But during the night I kept waking up and doodling in my notebook all the ideas I could use my mini book for. So this afternoon while putting some new goodies in the shop I worked on Illustrator designing my first of many.


I am going to use these as little flyers to hand out to people showing them my jewellery and include them in with orders. But of course I can't stop there, tonight I am going to work on another special mini book for all my lovely blog friends! For the moment you'll just have to imagine what delights I have in store...........

Your mini book is lovely! i have been cracking my head lately thinking of ways to come up with a form where i can share my art to friends and family this Christmas. The mini book idea is surely a lovely way of letting them enjoy some of my work. Thanks... alpha
