"a nation's strength" tiny book

For those of you who celebrate, Happy Independence Day!

I worked on a red, white, and blue tiny book this week.  (This is one of my favorite color schemes).  
Red, White, & Blue Tiny Book 1
If you're new to tiny books, some time ago Julie Collings presented a tiny book tutorial on her blog and then hosted a swap.  The idea of a tiny book is to take a 1/2 sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper and fold the paper to create 8 tiny pages.  (You would really have to look at the tutorial to see what I mean).  You decorate the 8 tiny pages, and after you have created your collage, you make a copy of it and fold up the copy to make a tiny book.
This is my collage below.

This is what will be the front cover (once it is copied and folded):

This is the first layout:
Red, White, & Blue Tiny Book 5
the second layout:
Red, White, & Blue Tiny Book 6
the third layout:
Red, White, & Blue Tiny Book 7
and finally, this is the back cover:
Red, White, & Blue Tiny Book 8
These are the tiny books folded, copied, and ready to ship!

To see more of my tiny books, click here.  I also sell several of them in my etsy shop.  (This one is up in my etsy shop, as well).

Also, I would be happy to swap one of my tiny books for one of yours.  I love collecting them.

Happy 4th!
