The final step of our beginners make a mini book project tutorial is assembling the scrapbook.
Begin by centering your two foot piece of ribbon in the middle of the back cover.
Secure with adhesive tape or liquid glue.
Then tape the last section of the folded cardstock to the back cover. Tape the first section of the cardstock to the front cover. Wrap the ribbon around the album and tie it into a bow.
The accordion style miniature scrapbook is just one of the many ways to create a small album. Here are some other clever ideas:
♥ Purchase mini albums (brag books) and scrapbook each page.
♥ Cut cardstock into equal sizes (i.e. 4 x 4 squares) and attach the pages with ribbon or twine.
♥ Purchase colored unlined index cards. Make a front and back cover out of chipboard. Assemble the album with metal rings.
♥ Experiment with your folds and create a fun design of your own.
♥ Instead of making a cover, use a small tin box to house the pages.
