My Story by Helen Chilton


In this post I'm making a mini book using one of the new Carabelle Studio border stamps:

Stamp the whole set of images and colour with Distress inkpads:

Layer onto concertina folded card

Cut out two covers from mountboard:

Then cover these and the smaller MDF dominoes with some paper scraps - I used 13Arts papers:

Stick the cover down:

Put tape on the edges of the MDF domino leaving a channel for the ribbon:

Stick onto cover:

Repeat on back cover allowing enough ribbon to run all the way along the back. This can then be pulled tight to close the book. Stencil the text on the front cover in black texture paste.

I love working on miniature art projects and these stamps were just right. I can see lots of other uses for them too, so watch this space!
