Greetings from the suburbs of Washington, D.C. -- Lea Sanders here in my first post on the BIA blog. =) Minibooks make a great gift for any occasion--Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwaanza or whatever winter holidays you might observe are no exceptions!
My 5" x 7 1/2" and 4" x 4" projects shown to the right give you an idea of the different size options and variety of Zutter Innovative materials you can choose to add to any project. They are easily adaptable to any theme or holiday you choose. See quick instructions, tool and materials listings below.
Snowmen Mini Books
I mixed a lot of products together to make these two books. The 4” x 4” book has acrylic covers on the outside and uses three sets of chipboard covers for pages. Each of the chipboard pages is inked in white, covered with patterned paper and embellishments. The 5” x 7.5” book has clipboard wood covers, two sets of acrylic tabs, and 6 inside pages. I kept the pages very simple by covering with patterned paper and adding embellishments only to the acrylic tabs. Holes were punched in each tab and ribbon tied to each. Rivets were added for extra interest to the cover before binding. Ribbon was added at the very end.
