Playing Around Again

In between the two online projects and the Basho series, I've been playing with the idea of making a tiny book with a beaded cover that would be small enough to wear...so I cut out this odd little house shape and covered it with some old velvet I had...I had a moon face and a metal fastening in the shape of branches so I beaded them onto the front of the book and since it is an accordion book, I added a strand of beads ending in an ivory toggle to fasten the book with. Last, I strung the necklace part and attached it to the book. Here are a few photos, just to give you an idea of it....don't know if I'll do it again, but once was fun!
Haven't decided what to put into the book, but I added some photo corners so it will probably be some digital photos of my family, including the felines, of course!

Very cool, Bobbi. Love that velvet. My apt is chilled right now as I just got home from working at the LBS for the second day in a row. The velvet makes me want to curl up in a throw to get toasty. LOL

Clever idea, Bobbi! Bet you had a lot of fun doing this project, too.
