I recently did a letter swap with the lovely Anni over at Glücksgeist. Along with her letter, she also create a little ‘zine’, which is the cutest thing ever. She called it “My Little Book of Positivity”, and it’s filled with so much cute graphics and inspiring quotes! I love it so much.
Over on her blog, she recently created another zine all about her current obsession of anything yellow. I finally decided to create one of my own! I decided to stick with the theme of blue since that’s one of my favourite colours.
I looked up a DIY of how to make these little zines. I followed this how-to post, and I was surprised to see how easy it was to make! I had so much fun making my little zine, and I definitely plan on making more! I used my sprocket to print out photos, as well as washi tape and some cardstock to decorate. I wanted to stick with a blue theme throughout the book, hence the title “My Little Book of Blue”.
The first two pages are all about travel. I used the photo of me in the infinity pool in Fiji on one side. On the other side I put the definition of wanderlust, because it fit the theme.
The next two pages are about love. So obviously, I had to include a photo of Rory and I. I was going to include a wedding photo, but none of them are blue. So I used one from our engagement instead. The quote is one of my favourites from Winnie the Pooh. There are seriously so many amazing quotes from those books!
I wanted to include one of my favourite quotes from Maya Angelou as well. So I looked around for another blue photo and landed on the one of me at my sister’s wedding. In my blue maxi dress on Waiheke Island, it’s one of my favourite photos.
Here’s how the whole thing looks when you unfold it.
I’m so happy with how all of this came together!! I had so much fun putting it together, and now I have two! I plan to make more about all sorts of things!!
Have you guys ever made a zine?
