"I am..." Mini Book

For a friend's birthday I made her an "I am..." mini book highlighting the qualities that I love about her, the parts of her personality that inspires me and makes me thankful to have her in my life. I used mini file folders as the dividers for each section and added inspirational quotes and photos that coordinate with each section... Friend, Courageous, Adventurous and Dreamer.

The front and back of the mini book are actually the backing from one of those scrapbook paper Stacks. I bound it using binder rings (such a fan!) and I recycled parts of my Soul Beautiful calendar, Gia picked such awesome quotes for that calendar that I adhered them to card stock and made inspirational tags out of them. The paper and embellishments were just pulled from my collection. The book was easy to put together and a fun way to honor someone you care about...add it to your Christmas craft list.

I love it. The best part is that every time I look at it I'm reminded to celebrate those things about myself. Thank you for that, a gift in itself.
