Hope you are drying out after the abysmal weather at the start of the week! You know how I hate rain so I will move on swiftly before I get into my usual tirade.
I have been as busy as a very busy bee this week. Our birthday demo day last weekend was a resounding success - thank you to all those who came. I know from many of you that you thoroughly enjoyed all the demos.
Then I really enjoyed my shows on Sunday at Create & Craft. I am currently prepping for demos for tomorrows Polkadoodles show at noon. So many have asked for instructions for the mini book I made in the morning show so here goes (still working on the video tutorials!!).
The above photo shows the book fully opened and both sides can be used for photos, journalling etc.. The photo below shows the bottom right panel folded in as the first step to closing the book up.
The bottom two flaps then get folded up so you have one row of what looks like three squares. The book then concertinas from the right. My picture of this stage is missing!
Sorry they are scrappy photos but the above shows the three pieces you need. Fold an eight inch square in half one way, open up and then fold in half the other way so that you have four quadrants.
Cut one 8" x 4" piece and fold in half.
Cut one 8.25" x 4" piece and score at 4" and 4.25" to make a quarter inch spine to take the bulk of the book.
Attach the two pieces as shown above - the spine piece is top left.
Hope this makes sense. These are not official instructions - just my interpretation. You can resize or fold up any way you wish.
PS tune in at noon tomorrow to see two mini books and one layout demo I have planned using Polkadoodles Gingerbread Twist.
