2011 Winter Swap: UsefulBooks

I sent my swap partner some very small useful books for putting little things in. Since she lives in the Seattle area, I made her a tiny traveler reversible accordion book, 2-3/8" square, with a map that shows her home town. Made from a single piece of heavy paper, it opens from either side or all the way out.

The other is a purse-friendly notebook made from a manila envelope with a button and string closure. The folded envelope is trimmed at the bottom so that it forms two pockets for storing coupons, receipts and other little bits of paper that inevitably need to be corralled. I hope she enjoys using these! --Cindy of UsefulBooks

I received these, and they are amazing! I love them and will put them to good use, as I'm going on a long trip soon!

Beautiful how the tiny buttons make such a delicate feature on the map book, and the map buttons add such a nice touch to the manila envelope.
