I like making little mini books as gifts, and these little books are perfect for a few favorite photos for Grandma. Here is the first one:
I cut a piece 12x5.5. Then I scored at 4" and 8". For the top flap, I trimmed off about 3/4".
I made band for the center out of the striped pattern, and I adhered that all the way around.For the inner folders, where the pictures will go, I cut the paper at 10.5x3.75, scored down the middle and embossed the outer flap.
Then I just adhered each folder so that they opened opposite of one another.
I used velcro circles so that the whole little package would stay closed.
