Mini Maze Book - - -

I made this with entry for the Manx Royal show in mind. It was a link on UKS that I investigated earlier this week an thought I would have a go at making it. It's a dinky little book and I am quite pleased with the way it's turned out. It was fun to make though I did have to think carefully about the way I placed my pages. I adapted for a slightly larger version as well - but made it a concertina of pages in the end as I couldn't quite get my head round the pages fitting inside.
edited to add - the pictures.
This is a little book full of picture of scarecrows from one local villages. The journalling is on tags tucked inside and tells of Laa Columb Killey. This is an agriculture show celebrated in the Parish of Arbory on St Columba's Day in early summer. One of the classes is a scarecrow and many gardens in the villages "sprout" scarecrows in late May/early June for the competition. Many families take part as this is for the children to be involved in the show - not just the best veg and flowers etc and it is very popular and I love seeing the ideas they come up with each year. This are my photos from 2005. So pleased I have finally got around to "scrapping" them.
