Birthday treats - Mini Concertina books

Last week I suddenly realised I had some birthdays of special cyber friends coming up and thought I might try something a bit different from the usual ATC BRAK. I saw an article in craft stamper magazine on making a little friendship book with stamping and masking and it reminded me that I had several minibook blanks that I purchased over a year ago and had never got around to using, as well as a load of new stamps that I needed to try out - the perfect excuse!!

This is the first one which I made for Jan. I had great fun doing this (I made a few practice ATCs trying out the technique and stamps as I didn't want to mess it up). I have never attempted a project with quite so many stamps and was a bit heart in mouth that I would make a mistake any moment but overall I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. Even cracking the UTEE on the two covers turned into a happy accident as it gives it a kind of vintage/distressed look. Having said all that it was really pretty easy to do once I had decided on the colours and stamps to use.

Hope you had a good day Jan!!
