ScrapScene Scrapbook Contest:
Samples above show stacks of mini books . (Click to enlarge)
The Challenge: Mini books? You’ve got to love them! We do and thought we would create a contest about them. Your mini book can be any size and any number of pages. It can be a project you’ve created brand new, or one that you have previously made. All we ask is that you either create a unique binding for it or use a creative method of closure/fastener. (Or both!) Entries will be judged on overall appeal as well as creativity in the binding and/or closure.
Inspiration: Need some inspiration? Take a look at some of these tutorials and artwork to give you some ideas. (Click thumbnails to enlarge).
