Mini Christmas book made from "leftovers"

This book was made entirely from scraps in my stash, paper bits of ribbon, leftover flowers and die cuts, brads and jewels. I used the Simple Alphabet stamps for the text entries, (I am new to Papertrey and don't have many stamps as yet). I got the idea for the little gift book from viewing this video by Laura at "Follow The Paper Trail".

I love trying out new ideas for putting things together and I was very pleased with how this project turned out. 
It was quick to make, has used a lot of my leftover goodies, has made a great little keepsake for my friends and also taught me new techniques. All good!

Here are a couple of photographs of my project.

Thanks for looking! :)
