Got these extremely tiny blank books, and one I would like to make into a minuscule scrapbook. I already started decorating the front cover, as I had this tiny scrap I'd been saving for such an opportunity. The book is about 3/4"x1/2".  Anyone have any suggestions of random tiny things I can put inside, other that the things I have saved for the occasion? It has a lot of pages, maybe 30-50. Truly 3D embellishments probably won't work, but I think a flat origami would be ok. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

You could use a hole puncher to either put holes through pages or cut out tiny pictures to be glued on.

Also, maybe you could put a quotation in there, one word (or even one letter?) at a time.

I'd probably remove some of the pages, too, so that it will still close somewhat flat when things have been glued inside.

Oh the hole punch idea is great, they could be little windows to the next page, right?

I think I might try gluing some pages together.

What about a lock of your hair? Or just a single hair curled up tiny?

The wee photos on the index sheet you get when you get a disc of your digital photos.

Dried herbs that have tiny leaves (like thyme or rosemary) or flowers (like lavender) that can be flattened.

Small flat sequins.

I agree with the tiny lettering, even cut from old books.

Old Barbie reproduction catalogs often have very small pictures of the accessories inside. The catalogs themselves are only about 3 x 2 inches.

I'd love to see it. I hope you'll post pictures when you are done. Don't forget to include a coin or something for scale. The smallest I have done was 1.5 inches square and I thought that was tiny enough, but yours sounds extraordinary.

Thank you so much Robyn! I never would have thought of sequins, and I am now looking through all of my tiny stuff for some of the things you mention. Pressed flowers is a good one too, my husband is quite the gardener, and is very proud of his flowers. There are many with tiny flowers on them I could press. It's those kinds of personal touches that I am looking for.
