Hidden Memories Miniature Books by Rhonda Thomas

Filed under Miniatures, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, Written Memories Kit

Oh, these books (with hidden treasures) by Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas are just wonderful!

I’ll let Rhonda explain some of her process:

I am absolutely obsessed with old books. I come by it honestly, my mother and grandmother being the book goddesses that they were. I have all of my mom’s old book cases, spilling with their books that are each a treasure to me. So, how could I not say “wow” to this months Written Memories Kit?

Each of these books is actually a matchbox holder that holds an accordion book. And one box is full of letters and music from the past.

The Written Memories 6×6 Paper Pad has designs that can be used for feminine and masculine projects.

Note that the accordion book in the bottom of the photo at right was made by using the images from a grid of mini frames that fills a whole page in that paper pad.

Then, I chose which photos I wanted to use from the collage sheet Miniature Cabinet Card Photos.

Next, I used the images from the other side of the same page to create both sides of another accordion book. (See the wide photo below with the light blue cover.)

 
Below are those letters and music pages that I mentioned before. Many were folded to make a crease. I also used a small brown ink pad on the edges and creases. Check out my supply list for quick links to the collage sheets I used.

Great job, Rhonda! I love the mix of accordion books (with a variety of themes) and the miniature “love letters”!
