Another Winter Wonderland Mini Book & Another Tutorial...

 
Another of my favourite simple mini books.... though this looks very dressed up in the stunning black and gold foil stripy papers...
A few pages to add your photos too...
Simple in its decoration for now... the photos should be the main event after all...
So opening up....
Simplest of decoration... Just a triple embossed snowflake element along with a strip of washi tape...
Opening up again...
And again...
So back to the front....
 A simple wrap round ribbon as the closure...
 Covered over at the back...
And a little detail.... difficult to see....but there is a die cut circle behind the gold foil doily...just stiffens up the decoration sufficiently....
And an admittance.... I had to use Hello Honey 12x12 card for the left and right pages... given a choice I would have used Basic Black .... but my supplies had not turned up! And the cupboard was very bare...

And seeing as it is Tuesday.... so Tips, Techniques & Tutorials Tuesday....a tutorial for you....
