Quick Mini Books.


I need to use up some Papers and Stickers.

Yes the cheap ones I got.



You will need:
1 Sheet of 12 by 12 thick Scrapbook Patterned Paper.

3 Sheets A4 200gms Paper.


Cut from the A4 Paper
6 pieces of 5 1/2" by 8"
Score it at 4" so it folds in half.

From the pattern paper,
Cut a strip 5 1/2" by 12".
Cut into 6 strips  5 1/2" by 2"
Score at 1" and fold in half.
Add glue to the back of this strip,
Holding two of the plain paper together and add the patterned strip to the join.
Making a 5 1/2" by 16",


Continue holding another of the plain paper and joining till all 6 pieces have been joined together.

Leave to dry.


Once dry reverse the folds so the patterened paper is in the valley of the folds.
Add glue to the bottom inside of each of the pages and join together to make 6 pockets.

Leave to dry once more.

From the remaining piece of scrapbook paper
you need to cut the cover.

6" by 12".

Score at  1 1/4, 5 3/4" , 6 1/4" and 10 3/4".

Fold the 1 1/4 inch at each edge inwards, add glue underneath and seal down on both sides.


Add glue to the front and back of the book and fold the cover over so the book sits inside.


Done.

Now just decorate.
