Thursday Tutorial- One Sheet mini books

Hello everyone its time for another Thursday Tutorial at FCCB. This week the challenge is "Book Lovers". Please check out the Monday challenge and see what the Design Team has created and then join us this week with a creation of you own.
Last year for Thanksgiving we had a big family dinner with our family and my SIL's family to celebrate the birth of our granddaughter Kenzie. I made these little one sheet mini books for each person (16). I also made them for my group at church. For these I Tags, Bags and More for the inside writing tags. I used the Thanksgiving cart for the Thankful heart and added some leaf embellishments.

Here is a video I found on
You Tube from Creations with Christie
It is an easy to follow video and I loved the ideas of using the Tim Holtz paper.

I made a few more following her video using these two papers. The one on the right is Tim Holtz.
Here is the completed books on the inside. The second picture is when I was stamping the covers. My husband walked in and surprised me and I messed up the stamp on the left. So I cut another cover and restamped and then glued it on op. The other one I added a rosette left over from another project. The ribbon glues around the outside to tie the book together.

Hope you enjoyed these little books and can find a use for them. I would love to read your comments. Don't forget to join us this week for the "Book Lover's" Challenge.
