Hello crafty friends!
I’ve been playing with my June Brimbles Box lately and I’m absolutely obsessed with the bright colors and fun patterns. It’s such a cute summery collection of goodies. You can check what was included in the June Stationery Brimbles Box in this blog post.
So I decided to create a little minibook using Anna’s exclusive journaling cards. I started by taking a 4″ wide strip of paper and folding it ever 3″ to create an accordion base. Then I stuck the different cards inside in the order I wanted them to go. I left some areas blank so I can decorate them myself.
To decorate the inside, I started by adding some more color. I used some dylusions paints and distress stains (which by the way Anna currently carries in her shop too!). I also used the Dear Lizzy “Documentary” stamp set that was included in the September 2015 box.
I obviously couldn’t resist using some of the stickers and alphas from the box, as well as the beautiful flowers that were on some journaling cards. I went ahead and fussy cut around the flower to turn it into a die-cut piece and use it to embellish my minibook.
Last but not least, I used the washi tape to create a bow closure around my minibook. To do that, I took a long strip of the washi and folded it in half so that both sticky sides get on top of each other. Then I just wrapped my washi-ribbon around the book and tied a bow.
