Mario Bros. Book

I made this Mini ticket book pattern into a reward book for my two older boys.  They about flipped out when they saw what I was making.  Actually I tried hiding it from them and somehow they sniffed it out and you should have heard the barrage of questions and overall chatter after they found the pieces.  So much for trying to surprise them!  Oh well.  I guess they like it and that is what counts.The SVG for the ticket book was made by Michelle at ScrappyDew.  Here is a link to their Facebook page where you can find the SVG for free.  I sized the book at almost 6" wide x 3.75" tall.
I kept the embellishments to a minimum since it is for boys but really enjoyed the addition of the different colors of twine to hold it all together.
Yoshi is the first reward they will get. I will eventually fill all the little brick pockets on the inside pages with die cuts from the Scrapio Dew Brothers SVG set at Scrappy Dew.   He is cut at 4" tall.
 This is a close up of the Mario Bros.!  They are cut pretty small, only around 3" so that makes for tiny pieces, and some of the smallest pieces I cut with vinyl so they wouldn't get lost and they would be self adhesive.  That's not called lazy, it is called being resourceful ;)

I hope you enjoy this book and if you decide to make one using ScrappyDew's pattern I am sure they would love to see it on their Facebook wall!

Have a wonderful day!
