Mini Accordion Book

Hi there crafty people,

I'm back today with another crafty little make for the Studio 12 blog using the fantastic Studio 12 Picknix CD.  This time I have gone all miniature and made a cute little accordion book using loads of elements from the 'All Sewn Up' collection.  Here's the front ...

I used a piece of stampboard for the front covering it with one of my favourite Picknix papers, which has a little cross-stitched element and a sentiment (from the Welcome Home collection) layered on top digitally.  I then treated it to a bit of my favourite distress ink and added some little stamped branches at the top.

I gave the same treatment to the back piece of stampboard and added the 'Handmade with Love' element digitally.  Don't forget to add the ribbon closure!
And here's what I did inside ...

I layered up lots of little miniature elements onto another design of Picknix paper, adding shadows to them to make them look more dimensional.  I then scored and folded concertina stylie.  The edges are all inked with distress ink and I added some more little stamped branches, a few punched flowers and doodled some little hanging hearts.

Hope you like it - pop over to the blog to see some more fantastic inspiration from my teamies too.  So many different ways to use your Picknix collection (and if you haven't got yours yet, then why not?)

Have a great weekend,
Hugz, Jan xx

  3. ohhhh just loving your accordian book Jan, know they take some doing as well. Probably just as well you didn't go to the show as it was rammed and they stopped letting people in by mid day,it was so hot as the air con wasn't working, such a shame really but they need a bigger venue for next year, still managed to spend far to much though....
    hugs and best wishes
