My First Minis

American Girl Magazine Inspired Minis

Tiny Treasures was the title of a feature article once a month in the craft section of the popular pre-teen magazine published by the same company who brought us American Girl Dolls. After following directions to make the mini birthday cake  in the article, I asked my mom to buy me the full lenghth book, Tiny Treasures, so I could follow the instructions to make every treasure in the book.
