Fabric covered mini-books for ARTe..

Hi everyone..

It is the quick post to show you the mini fabric covered books I created for last month ARTe.

I found one amazing tutorial (folding process starts on 3min30sec) on folding one 12x12 patterned paper into a mini-book measuring 3x3". I had some random patterned papers beautiful but not part of the collections so I decided to try a to create some mini-books with them and I loved it. The result. Clever, fast and original. To create covers I used cardboard cut to size and covered with fabric (similar to canvas with some texture). To decorate I used spray paints/ mists and various stencils (I sprayed fabric first, after it dried I cut and stuck it to cardboard). I stamped images with black ink and attached flowers, leaves, cord, lace and brads with hot glue gun.


I hope you like it.

Have a crafty day everyone,
thanks for stopping by..

Xx Marina..
