Crate Mini Books

Hi everyone...Even though Papermaze is not up and working at the moment we have decided to still keep this blog keep a check back here for the design team girls posts. We are in the middle of clearing up after the fire. So please bear with us for a while until everything is up and running again. Again if you have any questions email We will be back with a full update soon x

I'm a big fan of Mini Books, but I loose interest quickly.
I like to be able to make one during one stitting. If it's something that takes weeks of work I get bored and end up moving onto the next project before finishing.

I find the 12x12 Crate Papers perfect for making quick mini books.
They come in a variety of themes.
I like to buy 2 sheets of each.
And then I cut out each journal card and stick them back to bake so a different card is showing on each, but matching them up so all the same sizes are stuck back to back.
Once you've done this, the edges can be trimmed up tidy and then inked.
You are now ready to stick on your photos and add your journaling.

I've added some of the crate stickers that you can buy to match the collections too.

I just love how quick and easy it is to make and everything goes together so well.

To finish punch a hole in the top and add a large book ring.

I'm the same - I start a mini album and then lose interest too!! I love this book you made though - so achieveable - I'm going to have to try this one!!!

I am so not a mini book person and run out of patience VERY quickly lol. This is adorable though, so bright and eye catching and as said above, achievable! Really lovely work..xx
