Small Picture/ colored contact paper/ anything to use as the cover
Optional: Binder Clip
Instructions Part 1:
Step 1: First, to the pages. For an average sized paper, first, fold your paper in half.
Step 2: Next, fold it in half the other way.
Step 3: Cut along the creases
Step 4: Fold this into half; then fold both halves into half
Step 5: Cut along the creases :)
Step 6: Now, fold these strips into four parts
Step 7: Cut along the creases :) :)
Step 8: Do for all pieces and pick how many you want. This will decide how thick your book will be. I took all the pieces.
Step 8.5: Spread glue over the top of all the pieces.
Step 9: You can hold together with your hands, but I suggest a binder clip because it will take a while to dry.
Instructions Part 2:
Step 1: Now we are going to do the cover. I used a colored contact paper, but you can use any picture, like from the back of a magazine.
Step 1.5: Lay your pages on top of the contact paper. If your using a picture, use glue.
Step 2: Trim off excess
Step 3: Cut as shown in the picture below
Step 4: Fold these tabs onto the paper.
Step 5: You are done with your basic miniature book! Now if you want you can add any sort of thing to it. I added some sparkly paint then wiped it off, leaving sparkles but not covering the texture of the cover.
Then I added some masking tape over half the book so as to give it two colors. And wrote VOLUME 1 :)
Then, you can glue an eye/ jewelry pin (make your own! :) to the binding, so that you can add it to your necklace/keychain.
Here is the one I made with a picture:
These are the ones I made with fabric (a bit harder):
Enjoy and keep imagining!
