Tiny Books

A few weeks ago, I made these Tiny Books for Michelle's swap.
This was my first time making these little cuties. 
They were SO much fun!
I could easily become addicted to making them.
You start by decorating a full sheet of paper.
Then you bring it to the printer, where he shrinks it and copies it for you.
You cut and paste a little...
And just like magic, you have these adorable little books!
(Michelle has MUCH better instructions on her blog, but that's the basic idea.)
I have a few extras ~ if you'd like one, just leave a comment and I will pick two winners on Friday.

AND, be sure to check out all of the gorgeous books from the swap here!!!
So cute!
So tiny!

Edit: We have our winners!
and
Suzy

Your petite book is darling... and your "petit" cover is perfect for the wee format. All of the books and the packaging were wonderful. By the way, I was part of Danielle's "12 Days of Christmas" wall hanging swap, and your 9-ladies-dancing square was my absolute favorite! - Amy Bauer
