Tim Holtz Mini Book




Was determined to make a Tim Holtz Mini Book so last night I did just that. I used a 12x12 sheet from his Lost & Found Stash and his Symphony tissue tape. The buttons, feather and corners I already had in my stash and the gear diecut is from a Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz Die.


I really enjoyed making this little book and now need to fill it with something!


Used one of the alcohol inked ATCs I made to decorate the first page. I even alcohol inked the two silver sequins I used in the corners. Hazelnut ink comes up a treat, looks just like copper. I attached one of the Tim Holtz spinners too.


The tag was from another ATC I'd made during my 2nd session with my new alcohol inks.



Just made a chain closure for my little book, using a Tim Holtz chain looped around a button. Had to move the other two buttons to make it work! The little charms metal are from a local shop.


I attached the chain with a jump ring and a brad through the back cover. Works just dandy.


Here's a few more pages:-
Various Tim Holtz techniques on his tattered floral dies.


Life like Orange-Tip butterfly with Tim's mini butterfly die and distress inks.


Thought the man with umbrella stamp would finish off the back page well.


Hope you like.
