a stitch in time

How are you doing, my friends?.
Today, I'm sharing another tiny album. I saw on Pinterest, a lovely plastic journal with gorgeous stitches. I have not tried stitching on plastic before so I was intrigued :). I had a couple of transparencies in my stash, just enough to make a tiny book. Here's how it looks;

It measures 2.5" X 3", small enough to be a key chain :). I stitched (& glued) little things I love on each page, just like a sampler book. I'm using red, pink and white colors, inspired by oriental things from my post here. This tiny album is a perfect way to show off your vintage stamps collection, or your favorite flea market finds, don't you think?.

For the covers, I had used slightly larger transparencies so that I could fold at the ends and added pieces of lace (front cover) and silk flowers (back cover). Making them look like stain glass of some sort. 

Here's the back cover.

I stitched on all sides, to keep the flowers in place.

I love how I can see through the little things all at once.

Running stitches for borders and in the middle spine.

Torn fabric ribbon for a softer overall look :).

Let me share the rest of the pages in this tiny album; 

I love Alice In Wonderland so much :).

my old paint brush :).

buttons love.

charms love.

Last page, butterflies love. Nice sitting against the flowers :).

So, don't throw away that plastic containers yet, you could turn them into beautiful sun-catchers or maybe pretty mobiles :). Hope you'll try this fun project :). HUGS.
