A Mini-Book for Maddie.

Yesterday I needed a bit of inspiration to get me moving again on my "Learn Something New" book I've been working on (more on that later) when I  stumbled on Gigi Kennedy's blog.  All of her papercrafting projects are wonderful, but her "Daily" book is what made me stop everything to make this little book for Maddie.  Maddie loves anything and everything mini.  She also likes to doodle and sketch and write little notes.  This will be perfect for her.  I filled it with her favorite papers, her favorite colors, her favorite stickers, and some of my favorites I think she'll like.  I wanted it to be sturdy enough for her to carry around so after I cut the pages to about 4-1/2" x 3" I glued them back-to-back.  I sewed the papers onto the cover (which is a flash card from Target's $1 spot) and used multiple heavy duty glue dots to be sure the buttons and crown don't easily pop off.  Every other page or so has a sticker from pile Maddie's been hoarding all summer - hippos, penguins, cheetahs, cupcakes, hearts, and flowers.  I hope she adds a drawing or note to the book daily, just like Gigi planned to do with hers.  Thanks, Gigi!!
