Ultra Mini Books

My latest creative endeavor is making these very mini blank books. Aren't they sort of cute?

They are 2" x 1 3/4". Just the right size to use an old postage stamp or sticker to adorn the covers.

I am using a stitched binding which is very easy on something this small. I have a lot of postage stamps in my stash so I see more of these in my future.

And what about an even smaller book to fit inside a matchbox? Say, oh, like a decorated matchbox that never sold in my Etsy shop... yes, that will do nicely.

Just in case you're thinking I'm way too clever for my own good, let me stop you right there. I got these mini book ideas from, what else, a book.

As Inspiration Avenue is hosting a "Show and Tell" week. I thought I'd add to their link since showing and telling is exactly what I'm doing. If you like the old Dick and Jane type school readers, pop over and look and their examples-- really cute!

Thanks for reading!


  1. these would be party favors or dare I say... Gospel tracts! adorable!

  2. You come up with the neatest ideas, Diane. They are so tiny. They must be difficult to work on. I hope you're having a good day.
