christmas tiny book

I got around to making Christmas tiny books. I gathered up some vintage Christmas greeting cards, and recycled the images for this tiny book.

This is the first page and cover of the tiny book:
the second and third pages (first layout):
the fourth and fifth pages (second layout):
the sixth and seventh pages (third layout):
the eighth page (back cover):
I made several copies of the book:
I put together mini inspiration kits with the tiny book as the focal point in each kit. I put a tiny book, pearl embellishments, vintage trim, a red button, a candy cane, a confetti snowflake, and a seasonal Andes Peppermint Crunch thin in each kit. I made 13 of these kits. I sent 12 to my friend Heather for a Winter Wonderland Mitten Swap. The idea of this swap was to make a decorative mitten and 12 small items to be swapped out by Heather to the 12 participants. She would then send us a mitten (from another participant) and 12 of our individually made "mitten stuffers" (one from each participant):
I made an extra kit to send to one of you. Leave me a comment here, and I will randomly select one of you, and send you a kit. Sign ups now closed.

I also listed the Christmas tiny book in my shop. Take a look if you have a minute.
Before I run along, this is the mitten I made for the swap:
I used muslin fabric and red ticking fabric for the primitive heart (my favorite kind of heart). I wanted it to have a worn, vintage look.

I also added some vintage ribbon and a Santa charm. The ribbon and charm are removable.

Speaking of red ticking fabric, have you happened to see these ornaments?

Really... running along now. Don't forget to leave a comment for me if you want a tiny book kit.

Edit: The great and powerful Random Generator chose Candy Bello. :)
