I did something else too. I decided to time myself from the conception with sketches and measurements I figure out, to the completion of the Mini. It took me 13 1/2 hours. That's without inking any paper, lol. I also decided to create eight pages, rather than the traditional six, and because I knew I'd be punching and making flowers, the spacing between pages would be 3/8" rather than the usual 1/4". This made for a very thick Mini with a spine of 4"! The whole Mini measures 6 1/2" w x 5" h x 4" thick. I used two envelopes, glued together, back to back, for each page, thus creating two pockets with each page for the photo tags and the bottom pockets for journaling tags and stuff.
Because I finished the Mini just minutes before meeting up with my friend, I was unable to take a bunch of photos. But, I did have time to make a quick walk through video of the it and later made snapshots from the video. So the photos are not the best.
So here is the walk through video of this mini.
Thank you so much for joining me today. It was so fun to use one of my favorite old papers again. Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend. Happy papercrafting!
