Saturday a dear friend and I went to the local flower show. It was quite a feast for the eyes. In case you haven't figured it out, flowers are among my favorite things. One of the freebies I took away was a glossy poster defending the Rain forest. I decided to recycle it and make it into a mini book. I made it a little larger than my previous book. I cut the poster down to 16"x16" so the final book is 4"x4". I printed out a bunch of vintage seed packets and used them on every page save the front cover. The little flowers are a Martha Stewart punch. The large rose, the My Garden letters and the Wish banner are from a sizzix die sand the small roses are from a Uchida punch. All the inks used were Distress inks. the birds and cage are from a Cricut Cartridge, Serenade, and the scalloped backgrounds are cut from a spellbinders die. I have enough paper to make a small one though I may play with different finishes since it has large text on it but the wrong side is also glossy. I feel one more book bouncing around in my head but I need to finish my Marie Ghostie doll first.
