Teeny Tiny Mini Book

I have a teeny tiny mini book to share after watching the Tracy Evans FB lives and vidoes.The book is made from one piece of paper 5"x7" and finished book is 2,1/2" x 1.3/4"
The background was made with oxides,then stencils from TH,stamps from Chocolate Baroque,Rubber Dance,Art Journey ,craft mag freebies and my fave textures stamp.As I don't have a sewing machine I hand stitched blanket stitch round the two open ends and it also creates two little pockets to add tags.The clip was just to hold together to take pics.Also stamped onto book pages.

Staggering work Carol, just thinking about working on something this small gives me a headache! Love the colours and all of the stamps you have chosen and I think that your hand stitching actually enhances the whole effect. Amazing work.
