March may be almost over but it's still National Craft month so I thought I'd share one of my projects with you. I made a cute little book for one of my granddaughters with just a 12 x 12 sheet of scrapbook paper. I know it's old, but it's so easy!
- score the 12 x 12 paper at 3" intervals, turn and score again so you have a grid (as shown above)
- cut on the pink lines, be careful not to go past the scored lines (at the bottom and top where it is not high lighted)
- then you just fold back and forth......watch which end you start at (to be sure you get the color you want on the inside pages-you might start at the upper left or the lower right)
|This is the front, I will add something pretty to it and possibly attach a ribbon with which to close it. I think I'll put something over the spine too.|
You'll end up with a 3" square book, like the one below. I glued the back sides together so it can not be opened back up into the 12" square.
I put blank paper on a couple of the pages and some stickers on some of the others. It's for her, so she can use it for what she wants.
I love books, whether they are to read or write in.
