I found a new use for my scrapbook paper: make small books or journals. I saw this tutorial at Paxton Valley Folk Art (Thanks, Deb!). I pared it down, a lot, to just make a book. Why? Well, my version goes faster, uses less materials, and I just thought a mini book to write in sounded nice.
In just a few of days, I've made seven books. Not sure if I'm keeping, selling, or giving, but I like how they turned out. They're about 2 1/4" square with 12 pages (6 front and back).
Is it too early for Halloween crafts?
If you want to give it a try, it's pretty easy as far as these type of projects go, and you're only limited by your imagination and materials-- add embellishments, use funky paper, make different sizes...
Have fun and thanks for reading!
