Shrink plastic week: Mini book

Mini day today and a stunning mini teeny weeny shrink plastic album: LOVE it! love the shape, the colours... everything. And it's such a lovely gift idea... lucky friend who will receive this.
As she does every single week, Gio did a very detailed step by step to show how she achieved her project. Thanks Gio.

This time I made two minibooks with shrink plastic, containing a minialbum with mini mini pictures inside it : a nice gift to a friend to remember a wonderful day spent together.

I cut out two rectangular shape from a sheet of clear shrink plastic, tracing out a chipboard frame from Crafty Individuals - A4 chipboard die-cut sheet (Mini frames & swirls)

I made three holes on both covers. I stamped them using Black, Purple and Copper StazOn and the plate by Hobby Art Clear Stamps: Decorative Backgrounds.
I shrank the plastic using the heat tool ( you can use the oven as well). I coloured the two covers using several Distress Inks ( because the surface had become porous).

I cut a strip of white cardstock and coloured it using different Distress Inks and then stamped it using the same plate from Hobby Art.
I glued the strip to the cover along with a ribbon, to close the mini album. I also added some micro beads.

 I made the second mini book using white shrink plastic.
