Paris Flea Market Blog Hop

Karen Wyngaard

Welcome to the Paris Flea Market Blog Hop! This time our talented team is sharing pages, cards and other projects using the March 2016 collection.

I really enjoyed the Memento Holder project from the 2015 Retreat. I've wanted to make a mini version for some time, so I thought, "Why not try it with Paris Flea Market?"

I found some smaller white envelopes similar to those from the project kit, measuring 5 x 7.5". Once the envelopes were folded in half horizontally, the dimensions for the rest of the mini book came together pretty easily.

My book has five signatures, with a 3/4" spine. My stitching holes were pierced at 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 and 5/8" across the spine.

I skipped the diagonal pocket step, and opted to add mats to that half of the envelope instead.

I added Lite Gray Coin Envelopes decorated with Paper Lace Mat scraps to three of the inside pages.

Each envelope flap is decorated with Vintage Lace Washi Tape.

The cover is embellished with a Crewel & Unusual Wooden Expression and a Jumbo Eiffel Tower Charm. The "i's" in "imagine" are dotted with Crewel & Unusual Lite Pearl Stickers.

I can't wait to re-print photos from my trip to the Paris Las Vegas and tuck them inside!
