Miniature Books! Love 'em!

Sharing some miniature books that I've made this past month.  Once I got started, it's hard to stop with all the various shapes and sizes - a number of these were done with one piece of 12 x 12 paper cut and folded.
              
The 2 smallest of the group are 1 1/2 x 2 inches and are star books.  I've used vintage photos some from Vintage Image Madness - love those Playful Piernot images - on many of the books and the star book has old family photos, so is particularly special to me.  Star book:

 

Here is the star book open:


I started making the mini books for Lenna's mini book swap and decided to make a variety of shapes and sizes, the largest being  4 x 3 - I'll share that in another post.  Now I have to decide which books to choose to send to Lenna to swap out!  I may list one or more on Etsy, we'll see!  Thanks for checking them out!
