Step 1 : Select your pictures
I only use 6 pictures. I printed them in black and white in size : 4x12inches.
Step 2 : Build your mini book
You just need to glue cardsdock on the back of every picture to strengthen it. So the size of every cardstock is the same as your picture (4x12 inches for me).
You need 6 differents papers.
I selected these items :
Cover every cardstock whith patterned paper.
Cut 2 pages in transparencies ( )
Step 3 : Use your Big Shot and your favorites dies to create your embellishments
I used dies Sizzix :
New flowers 65690
Use several pattered paper to create your flowers.
Complete with baby stickers just perfect for the mini book ! I really love using these funny animals and designs !
Add some title, little words to complete your book.
Step 4 : Build your cover
For the cover you need cardboard, corrugated paper exactly.
Cut two pages in size 5x13 inches to make the cover.
I always make the cover at the end, because for me, they need to resume the whole book.
Embellish it with a heart's paper cloth and a flower made with your Big Shot. Use several papers for more fancy.
Add the title LOVE.
Step 5 : Bind your book
Use your crop-a-dile to make the holes, link with metal rings.
And now look at the whole book !
