Matchbook Mini

A couple weeks ago, Kristina Nicolai White posted a tutorial on Two Peas in a Bucket on how to make a Matchbook Mini. I was hooked! I thought it was the cutest little mini book ever, and I had to make one! Now that I've made one... I have to make more! Not long after she posted the video, my mom told me that she wanted me to make her another mini book... Oh all right! :)


Just like the example, I mostly used the Amy Tangerine Yes, Please collection with other little tidbits! :)


The book contains pictures of my family. As you can see, my almost 8 month old niece makes it onto all but one page :) 



This type of mini book is so easy and quick to make! All of the pages are stitched together with a sewing machine. I used washi tape to cover up the stitching. 



 The only page without a baby.... how long will that last??? ;)


Amy Tan's lines are just so versatile! There are also so many other lines that match with it as well. This  two pages use Amy Tan, Bella Blvd, Glitz, and MME! 



This is my favorite page. Makes me smile! :) 


This is actually the second page, but it got out of order! I love that you can see the other pages behind it.


And the very back of the mini book with a note to my parents. 


I hope you have enjoyed and you are inspired to create a Matchbook Mini! They are really fun to create :)

Really cute Andrea!! I've done one of the matchbox mini's before, but not where it was stitched together! LOVE this one and great idea to use the Washi to cover your stitching!
