DT Project #2 by Minxy, Featuring:

JillyBean Soup: Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup Collection

Hay Snazzy Gang
So i'm guessing you're all back today to find out "what's in the tin"

It is of course a little mini book

I started by cutting 4 circles of mountboard and covering each piece back and front with the various Jellybean Soup PapersI dyed some lace with distress stain for the closure, and stuck this 2 the front and back page before the papers. {i made a shallow channel in the mountboard so the lace would not be raised under the paper.}

I then cut out 6 of the elements from the bite size bits sheet, and added 1 to each page.

I used all the clear stamps from the kit to accent each page, along with some of the stickers and some shapes cut from the backing papers.

I used the largest of the stamps to finish the last page.
I punched 3 holes into each page and bound with twine.

So... Thats me done for another rotation, I hope you have enjoyed my little book in a tin project, Don't forget there is still plenty of inspiration to come from my fellow teamies, starting with Claire on Monday.
I'll see you again in Feb
Till next time, Stay Inky

I soooo love little books and this one is fab. Great tip to channel out a piece of the mountboard to set the lace into. Another stunning project xxx
