2 little valentines books for my daughters

There are a million tutorials out there for making little books.... But I will still show you what I did. I cut 3 papers that were 1" x 2". Then I cut a piece of card stock about a 1/2" larger and scored a strip down the middle.

 Then I rounded the edges with a punch stamp. And I painted a heart on the front and sewed on a sequin star.

 I glued the marbled paper I made months ago to the back of the card stock...
Then I glued in family photos, and added the words " always remember, you are loved by so many."

And the last thing was to sew the 3 folded pages into the spine of the painted cardstock, and cover those threads with a thin strip of duct tape on the outside spine. Done.

There is just something so special about a tiny book!
Happy valentines day!
