Lovely Little Mini Book

I can honestly say this is my own design.
I have never seen anyone making one like it before.
It's made from one sheet of 12 by 12 paper.
It works best with a small all over design.

It measures 3" by 2".

I know the photo looks a mess.
However it much easier to use this cutting guide.
Score at 2" 4" 6" 8" and 10"
Turn and score at 3" 6" and 9"

Now can you see the X marks.
You cut these.



The cuts will be like this.
To fold this design takes just a second.
With your design face down,
Fold the paper in half at the 6" fold.
The easiest way to explain is that 
 pattern will fold onto pattern.
and underside onto underside.
If when you try to open your book
you see the underside of the paper,
Just reverse your folds.

I added glue to the underside of my pages
 and sealed them down but you can
make them into 
tiny pockets.

For my covers.

I cut a 2 1/2" by 7"

Score at 3 1/4" and 3 3/4"
Then add glue to your book into the cover.
2" by 6 1/2" for the green cover paper.
Decorate.
