Mini notebooks or Pocket sized notebooks

Hello everyone!
Today I would like to show you what we have made during the weekend with my 9 year old daughter Sophia.
These lovely notebooks are hand stitched with cotton thread. I used white crochet thread.
For the covers I used textured cardstock for pastel colored notebooks and smooth cardstock for the bright tropical notebooks.

Feathers, apples and other embellishments are cut with silhouette cameo. I created my cutting files in illustrator and then cut them out with my Silhouette.

Fun part is to decorated the feathers. We heat embossed them with colored embossing powder. Our favorite is a red feather with gold glitter embossing powder. I used American Crafts gold glitter embossing powder . It actually has real pieces of glitter in it. I just love that powder, it gives very shiny, festive effect.
