~ Baby Shower Book & Goody Bags

Here is my second in a series of Bind-it-All minibooks made from patterned paper scraps.  This project is a baby shower book for well-wishers to add their happy greetings.

I also made goody bags for all 35 of my co-workers plus a few extra for Katie’s family.  See more photos of both projects in the slideshow below.

~ “Made with Scraps” BIA Minibook

While I was thinning out my collection of paper this weekend to give to a friend, I had amassed a pile of scraps, not worthy enough of sharing in current-state.   I saw a lot of similarities in the colors and patterns.  Instead of throwing the scraps away, I challenged myself to create one project using the bits of paper – married similar styles of different manufacturers – to make this little minibook.

I’ll eventually make another project using other scraps in the coming weeks.  Come by again to check it out.
