Mini Book Pages

I thought I'd share a little bit how I made the pages in my Treasure mini book. I wanted to conserve my beautiful Sassafras Lass paper :D

To start I removed the binding from a Maya Road Lunch Break Book.



I then decorated one for the front cover...


For each portrait picture I cut two strips of pattern paper to measure 1 inch by 6 inches and attached them to the sides of the board book pages.


I then added the picture and sanded all the side.

For each landscape picture I again cut two 1 X 6 strips and attached them to the top and bottom...


I then added the picture and sanded all the sides.


To bind the book I punched each chipboard piece with my Cropodile and attached them all together using a beaded chain. Make sure when you are designing your pages that you keep in mind where you will be punching the holes as you don't want to loose a part of the picture that you'd like to keep :D
