Mini Book Series #5: Question

Welcome to the Mini Book Series!  Today for page #5 you are given a question instead of a theme.  Want to play along?  All you have to do is create any kind of mini book you would like using our themes / questions for each week.  Then leave a comment with a link to your creation so we can all go check it out and oooooo and ahhhhhh over your fabulous talent!

Today's Question is:

WHAT KEEPS YOU GOING WHEN YOU ARE BARELY HANGING ON?

(Click on the above picture for a larger, more detailed view.)
The trick for the Mini Book Series is to have the answer inside today's page.

I used sealed envelopes that are cut down one side allowing  a tag or index card to easily slip inside for the answer.
  • The paper I used is from My Mind's Eye Everyday Tango.
  • The Pooh image is actually from a stack of flash cards I got from The Dollar Tree.  It's matted and popped up with Pop Dots.
  • I printed the Question off the computer.
  • Twine is pulled through 2 holes punched with my Crop-a-dile at the bottom and I slid a bracelet charm through the twine.
  • More bracelet jewelry "spacers" were used on the ribbon on the tag.
  • And an earring was used on the bottom of the tag.  I cut off the earring post and used Zots to adhere it to the card.

    This was really fun to make.  I actually made this a while back and couldn't wait to include it in my Mini Book.

    Would you like to win some jewelry to use on your next project?  Just leave a comment on this post!  I'll draw a winner and post it Monday.


    I so hope you are having as much fun as I am with this project!  Don't forget when leaving a comment to leave a link to your page for this week.  We can't wait to see what you've come up with!
