Today I'm showing you a craft I made in the last few days, but this idea is in my mind since last summer. It is a mini showcase. When I was younger teenagers used to keep one in their bedroom, but now I can't find them anymore around, in shops, in other people's houses. I've always been loving them because they are a little collection of tiny keepsakes. And since I was a child I love making tiny things, so it was just time to make this showcase. I chose vintage style because I like adore it and those of you who read my old post know that.
Avevo già creato dei mini libri alcuni mesi fa per un biglietto d'auguri. In quel caso, trattandosi di un biglietto per una studentessa, avevo aggiunto i nomi di alcune materie. Qui, invece, ho scelto i titoli di tre grandi romanzi che hanno come protagoniste delle donne: Madame Bovary, La signora Dalloway e Anna Karenina.
In questa creazione ho inserito dei riferimenti a questi tre romanzi. Infatti ci sono i fiori (La signora Dalloway) e Parigi (Madame Bovary).
Non è difficile fare questi mini libri. Basta tagliare molti rettangoli e sovrapporli, poi incollare un lato e aggiungere la copertina.
I have already created some mini books a few months ago for a card. In that case, as it was a card for a student, I added the names of school subjects. Here, instead, I chose the titles of three great novels whose main characters are women: Madame Bovary, Mrs Dalloway and Anna Karenina.
I put in this craft soem references to these novels. In fact there are flowers (Mrs Dalloway) and Paris (Madame Bovary).
It is not difficult to make these mini books. You just have to cut many rectangles and layer them. Then glue a side and add the cover.
Non si può leggere un libro senza un segnalibro!
You can't read a book if you have not a bookmark!
I cut out some tiny butterflies from a kraft supermarket bag. Then I put on them golden shining.
Il metro che vedete sotto è un timbro di un set sul cucito. Poi ho aggiunto una gruccia per abiti di metallo, un rocchetto con del filo Pirkka e due bottoni di legno. È di legno anche il cuore vicino alla Torre Eiffel.
The tape measure is a stamp from a sewing clear set. I also added a metal coat hanger, a reel with paper Pirkka wire and two wood buttons. Also the heart next to the Eiffel Tower is made of wood.
Le farfalle sono uscite dalla scatola!
The butterflies came out from the box!
Tutte conserviamo delle vecchie lettere, penso, e questo è anche uno dei miei temi preferiti, come potete vedere in alcuni vecchi post. Qui ho aggiunto una busta aperta e tre una sull'altra.
I think we all keep some old letters and this is one of my favourite themes, as you can see in some of my old posts. Here I have added an open envelope and three more layered.
Sono molto felice perché con questa creazione sono Guest Designer in due stupende sfide, la n° 10 di Arte a tutto tondo, con il tema "Regalo a un'amica", e la n° 13 di Sognando Scrap, con il tema "Vintage o moderno". Correte a leggere i loro post e partecipate!
