Tiny Is Cute

Like so many other people, I think tiny things are cute. Downright adorable, even. And, the smaller the object is, the higher its potential for producing squees of joy. I like books, therefore, tiny books cause me to make that embarrassing sound. Thank heavens no one was around to hear me this afternoon as I finished seven of these tiny treasures (not all are pictured, of course). These are for my Etsy shop, but I'll be making another for myself after having such a hard time keeping my hands off this batch (especially the one with the crystal!).

It was a great way to use up some scraps of leather (I knew I saved them for a good reason) and findings from my stash. There are 40 pages of hand-torn, white linen paper in each journal. Each measures approximately 1.5"x1.25"x0.5".
