I’m keeping my favorite mini-books the way they are, but I doubt I’ll be making many more.
So if you’re like me and have a love-hate relationship with minibooks, you may not want to give them up completely. Here’s how to keep the parts you love and get rid of the parts you hate in your future mini projects…
I love to take my scrap-journal, an art journal, or a book I’m altering and go work outside on the patio of Starbucks while I sip hot green tea.
Each are such manageable items to work with on the go. But there are two things I’ve had to learn at least a few times and it’s my tip for today:
Always carry tape and a pen with you. At all times!
Especially a pen! At least if you forget the tape you can go home and tape it all together, like I did for this page. I had journaled on the inside of this Starbucks napkin and then realized I couldn’t tape it in. No big deal, it gave me time to consider using tissue tape — which I may also start carrying around with me at all times!
If I have no pen, though, I might as well just go home.
From now on I think I’ll keep extras of these items in my purse in case I forget to toss it into my tote bag!
