It’s a miniature challenge this week at Cut it Up Challenge Blog! The theme is Make it a Mini! A mini what, you ask?? Anything mini. We’re looking for anything small – note cards, mini albums, magnets . . . You get the picture, right?
I used an old freebie from Lettering Delights called Banner Day. The set included an alphabet, paper pack, clip art, frames, even a mini album. I got the svgs to go along with it. The svgs are the same images that are in the rest of the collection. I decided to make a mini mini-album!
It’s just 3.5 inches! It all started with the idea of making a mini mini. Who would appreciate something so small? My dolls, of course!! So I brought them outside for a photo shoot. (Who says fifty-somethings can’t play with dolls?)
Then I inserted their pictures into the Banner Day mini album pngs and printed them out at three inches. After all the pages were printed out, I measured the boots, lamp post, and other elements, opened the matching svg files and cut them out the same sizes. I placed the paper piecings on top of the printed images to give it some depth!
Here are the inside pages:
Here are some closeups of the cuts. I also used old stickers here and there.
My husband was freaked out by my little mini. He doesn’t really like my dolls (imagine that!) but I have had them a lifetime and couldn’t part with my old friends.
My dolls, on the other hand, really enjoyed their scrapbook. They spend a lot of time looking at it:
