I have seen these fold up mini scrapbooks around on different blogs and have always loved them. Of course, I have always wanted to make one, but didn't want to spend a ton of cash on a tutorial. I found a blogger that had instructions for making these on her blog for only $3.97! What a deal! I jumped on that 'Buy Now' button, lol! This post is going to be in two parts because I have a ton of photos for this book so you can see all the parts. It is such a cool book- all the little pages that open up are like going on a treasure hunt. I did use a retired Sale-a-Bration 2009 Designer Series Paper for this 6x6 scrapbook. I love this DSP and wish they had added it to the 2009/2010 Idea Book and Catalog. Since it didn't make it to the big catalog, I use it only for special projects ;-). I just put together the book- there are no photos or embellishments in it yet. I am pretty sure I am going to use this one for Spring photos, so will get to the finishing touches later :-). OK, let's look at this cool little scrapbook...
This is the cover. As you can see it ties closed and has a little bit of an overlap on the front cover. The ribbon is added at the beginning of making this book, so no worries about it coming out.
When you open up the cover, you will see the front right flap, the first page in the middle, and the inside of the front cover. All great places to add journaling, stamped images, and other embellishments of your choice. The center section is where I plan to add my title.
The photo above is the middle section with the right flap opened up.
The middle page opens up to the left and this is the next middle page. You can still see the right flap from the previous page and then a peek of the new flap to the left. This book is just so fun! Please go to post number two to see the rest of the book and for the supplies list :-).
