Alice In Wonderland Mini Books

Vintage Alice in Wonderland is a such a popular theme so I really wanted to recreate these mini books I saw in a craft magazine. These mini books will be the cutest decoration to your themed party, give them as party favors or use as a personal journal or scrapbook.

These mini books were created from a regular cardboard box cut it into four pieces measuring 4.5" x 4". Then I ripped the top layer of cardboard off to expose the corrugated portion. I cut cream cardstock for the inner pages about ¼ inch smaller than the covers, approximately 8 sheets per book. The Alice in Wonderland images were downloaded from the internet and printed onto plain white paper.

I painted the Alice cover with pink and turquoise acrylic paint and the Mad Hatter with french vanilla and turquoise. The covers and inside papers were punched with the Zutter Bind it All machine. Adhere the Alice images to the covers (I used MS craft glue.) Then I tied rose and turquoise crinkle seam binding ribbon to the bottom of each cover. I typed Alice quotes and printed them onto plain white paper and adhered them to Jenni Bowlin journaling tickest. I distressed all images with paint too. The tickets were inserted into the memo pins and then into the cardboard covers. I added a self adhesive jewel to the center of the memo pins. A small decorative pin was also inserted into the ribbons. The books were bound with 3/8” inch black wires. Finally, I attached tiny trinkets bought from the craft store. Thank you for letting me share with you! Denise
