FEBRUARY 2013 SWAP - MINI-BOOK FROM ONE SHEET OF PAPER

Post by lyndaejane on Thu 7 Feb 2013 - 18:45

Please see the NEW tutorial on this: A MUCH BETTER MINI-BOOK FROM ONE SHEET OF PAPER. The one I put up the other day is just too fiddly, I think, and this one is simpler anyway.

Make a mini-book - either the basic one, or one with a pocket - and send it to the person whose name I will PM to you. When you sign up, if you'd like your mini-book to be a particular colour or theme, please put that on your post. Please try not to make your theme too specialised, otherwise your book-maker might not have the papers/stamps/embellishments to make it.

Sign up by the 16th: books to be posted by the 28th February.

Thanks, Kim: you're on the list.

Think you will find this really easy, Alison, and I think both styles will look very effective. The problem with the other one is that there were too many folds coming into play when you folded up the book: if you hadn't made the three cuts exactly on the fold there was a lot of trimming up to do.

Count me in, no specific theme, not keen or retro/brights though.

I am giving it serious thought Lynda, but I'm afraid haven't decided yet.

Don't worry, Lorraine: will understand completely if you don't feel you can do it. If all else fails, you could do the DIY version - make the book - the quick bit - and send it with some matching bits and pieces ready to embellish!

As there's so few of us, make your mini-book for the person below you in the list (bottom name for the top name). Hopefully different people than the January one!

How are people getting on with this? I've folded mine according to the instructions, but it doesn't seem to be looking much like a mini book, told you I needed pictures!
I've done the rectangular one Ok but I can't seems to get Lynda's which is a nicer shape to open properly, will have another go.

To re-clarify: instructions are in the Tutorial for 'An even better mini-book from one sheet of paper' (where you found it, Kim).

Very quick to make, so no need to panic, girls.
