Hello Unies! This week we have a Make It Tiny Challenge on the Unity Show and Tell. What does that mean, you might ask? Well, I know people who love scrapbooking, but a 12X12 layout can be a lot. I’m typically a card maker, but even an A2 size card offers a lot of room. What I’m challenging you to do this week is to make something of a smaller size. I’ll be showing you three different options, but if you have another idea, try it out!
First up, let’s look at some bookmarks for keeping projects tiny. I did not know this until my friend Annie Sterner informed me, but bookmarks come in standard sizes. Me, I typically grab a receipt from the bottom of my purse and save my place in my book. I’m not one of those monsters who fold page corners over. You know who you are. Standard bookmark sizes are 2″ X 6,” 2″ X 7″ and 2.5″ 8.5″. Use those sizes or not, but here are my versions.
The first bookmark is 2.5 X 8.5. I used the kit Hoppy and Hedgie for the first time. Let me say, it will not be the last! The sentiment is from the kit Today Is a Lovely Day, which is highly underrated.
The second bookmark is another 2.5 by 8.5. The bulbs are from “Glowing and Beautiful” and it paired perfectly with a sentiment from “Don’t Give Up!”
Now is time for an Angela tiny project special. Angela loves some tags, and I have learned to enjoy making them too. Attach them to a gift, make one for yourself, or fasten it to a card! Jolande has been making mini books out of tags too. They are so versatile!
The final tiny project is the ATC or Artist Trading Card. These small pieces pack a big punch at 2.5″ by 3.5.” The challenge is to make your piece a finished composition in such a small area.
The last “Make It Tiny” ATC card is made with the kit “Struggle Is Part of It.” I will probably use this ATC as a bookmark. #versatile!
I hope you will join us for this final week of July in making a “Tiny Project.” Share it with us in the “Make It Tiny Challenge” album on Facebook Show and Tell!
