I chose to make this 3 X 3 mini book using papers from the Authentique PRIDE collection 6 X 6 pad. The pages for the book are made from one 12 X 12 piece of DCWV(Stack 7) paper (Tutorial by Tracy’s Treasures24 part 1 & part 2)
The postage stamp frames are from Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges ( page 37) cut at 2.75 inches by 2.75 inches. I used the Gypsy to get the exact size and the Cricut Expression.
The placards and postcards were scissor cut from the Authentique PRIDE paper. The placards on the front and back covers are elevated using Recollections Foam Squares.
Red/White and Blue/White Twine by American Crafts were used for the closure.
Edges are inked using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Blue Gems by Want2Scrap are adhered to both sides of the tags. The toppers for the tags were the leftover pieces cut from the inside of the postage stamp frames folded in half. (nothing goes to waste) LOL
I used many adhesives. Terrifically Tacky Red tape to adhere the pages together to form the pockets and to paper outside of the covers. Glue Glider Pro to adhere the covers to the book. Zig 2 Way to adhere the postage stamp frames to the pages and Scotch 2-Way to adhere toppers on the tags.
