I needed a super quick and easy mini a while back and this sheet a paper was in a Paperie kit I had open in front of me. I don’t know about you, but to me it looked like a mini book kit waiting to happen!
I literally printed my 12 on Twelve pics from June, pulled out my washi tape and a black pen and that was it. At the very end I added some baker’s twine but there were no other embellishments or adhesive. In other words, if you want an on-the-road kit for a vacation project, this is what you’ve been waiting for!
I cut all the elements from the patterned paper apart and trimmed out my pictures.
I then took the two largest patterned pieces, laid them side by side and adhered washi tape to the seam on the outside.
After that I just washi taped in the other pieces, paper and pictures, as needed.
There is very little journalling as the pictures were simply an overview of one day so I felt they only needed quick captions.
There are also no embellishments because I felt the assortment of washi tape and the interest of different sized papers added enough.
Also, I made some extra little flaps and tags with the smaller pieces of patterned paper to add to it all!
Obviously, you can use any paper for something like this, and you can add many more embellishments, journalling, extras, etc. but this is a great starting point for those of you always asking, “What do I take with me as a small kit on the go?” It doesn’t get any smaller than this, my friends!
I may go back and add some stickles here and there (I have just a small obsession with Rock Candy!) just to bling it up a little but…. we’ll see!
I hope you try out a quick mini and leave me a comment so I can see what you make. Or, if you want more detailed instructions, let me know, I can always do a tutorial for you!
Back tomorrow with some exciting news….. times 2!
