Handmade Miniature Books & Journals

Blog Ad FM

Just a quick announcement to say that I now have a new shop – ‘Fern Makes‘ – which I have set up to sell handmade products that don’t fit into my card or jewellery shops.

I’m starting off selling miniature bound books/sketchbooks/journals that have blank pages inside and can actually be written or drawn in despite being only a few cm tall!

You can choose between 3 different colours and whether you would like a hardback or leather cover. Each item has been made from scratch by me, and each book page has been hand sewn to the rest (rather than just glued) for extra durability.

You could give them as a gift for a doodler, writer or book lover….and I particularly like the idea of writing nice messages inside and giving it to a loved one 🙂

New Website!

Welcome to my new website address and design…it’s probably long overdue!

I’ll be continuing to post craft tutorials, as before, plus I’m hoping to add a bit more content myself; mainly graphic designs and arty projects. I have a few ideas but it’ll take a little while for me to plan this (slightly) new direction for the blog.

Stay tuned, and thanks for visiting 🙂

Fun & Quirky Greetings Cards – UK

This business has been a looonnnng time in the making, but The Card Connoisseur is finally here!

I have started selling greetings cards (just in the UK at first) that feature original illustrations by me and are all printed on quality card. I’m really excited about concentrating on this business, and can’t wait to add more and more designs… as well as some handcrafted cards too later on.

Thanks to everyone who has a browse 🙂

DIY Miniature Bookbinding

I have been working on putting together this Skillshare class for a while now, and it’s finally finished 🙂
In the bite-size lessons, I will teach you exactly how to make a miniature hand-bound book.
Each book is finished with a smart leather cover, and measures only 1″ wide!
The mini books have stitching down the spine (rather than just glue) to make them extra durable, which means that they can be used to actually write little messages in. And, if you add an eyepin, you can turn it into a necklace pendant if you like.

Thanks to anyone who enrols!
