I love mini books and I think they make a perfect gift if you have just a few pictures or thoughts to share! They are simple, easy, fun and don't take a huge time investment. One of my favorites at Valentine's time, is an altered candy box. All those chocolates get eaten and there is a perfect heart left, just waiting to be altered and have pages added.
SO super easy and simple, just add your favorite permanent glue or modge podge to the top of the box and add your favorite paper, I used the Simply Scrappin' Afternoon Day dream kit by stampin' up to alter mine, used some snail adhesive to add the gorgeous Riding Hood Red Ribbon around the edge. (I didn't alter the bottom of the box, although its just as easy, if you wish) Use the box lid, upside down to trace your pages(you may still need to trim them slightly smaller to get them to fit in the box, especially if you want to connect the pages with a Crop-a-dial or whole punch and some ribbons.
