A miniature blank book in a tiny box

I love making miniature blank books to use as journals, give as gifts and to play in. I have made these little books for several years. I add in a lot of pages, so it is hard to share all of them in photos, and that’s why I haven’t always shared them. I should make a video flipping through a finished miniature blank book or one that I’ve already filled with art, don’t you agree?

But first let’s start today with a look at a blank book that fits in a tiny paper box…

I thought I’d start with this cute mini notebook that I made to fit in a tiny palm-sized box that I already had on hand. I made it as a gift for my mom last year, so a lot of the pages are blue (her favorite color)…

The cover is a marbled blue-green paper that is just lush, like a jungle…

Inside this small notebook you find mostly plain pages, patterned paper on one side and white on the other side – but I also added in some stickers, images and words as inspiration. Here area few of the many spreads

I really like the combination of patterns in this miniature blank book. You could use it to doodle a bit, collect quotes or simply glue in word poetry. Every notebook has so many possible ways to be used – miniature notebooks as well as big chunky journals. The blank page is an invitation!

If you too like miniature notebooks, let me know and I’ll share a few more on the blog soon. Do you make your own, or would you like to try? And if you like mail art, sign up for the Postcard swap that I posted about during Easter.

    Love it! The miniature notebook you show off here is adorable, so please show off others you’ve made. I like the mix of patterned papers you used.

    If you wish, you can see some miniature notebooks I made here: recycled mini journals

    My pages aren’t as colorful as yours, since I planned on using these for jotting down notes and such while I’m out and about.

    Yup, I love miniature books! OK, books of all sizes. I’d love to see one filled up because I’d like to make some out of all that scrapbook paper in the closet but I’m just not sure what I’d do with them. Blank paper, yes, I get that. But patterned paper? That puzzles me more……Thanks for this!
