Serves me right the mini book is too thick.

As the title says the book is just too thick.
I ended up using loads of papers to cover it.
Think I will just use one in future inside a mini book with a mix of other styles.

I think the card I used was too thick, but will show how it's made so I can make it another time.
Take a piece of A4 card and score it at
3", 6 1/2" and 10".
Turn it and score at
2" and 6".
You then just cut all the outside score lines on the long sides.
Kathy makes hers with 11" card buy I didn't want to cut it so I measured it for myself.

It is made by folding the end two flaps inwards to create a pocket.
The next flaps can be folded to either the back of the front and the little strip on the end gets cut and glued to make a small pocket on the side of the page.
I am not going to write more as here is the video from



She has some great ideas.
Now finished this one so off to finish making my swap mini album gift.
