The dilemma today was what to do on the first sunny day we've had for ages, well the answer of course is to stay in and faff about making a mini book for this week's Out of A Hat Challenge. (Actually I did have mother over in the morning then my daughter had an Orthodontic appointment so I haven't totally been lazing about all day! ahem!).
Here's my wee bookie made out of one sheet of 6x6 paper. My daughter actually showed me how to fold it.
|showing the folds|
Cut the 6 inch paper into quarters then fold each one in half horizontally, then vertically, then once diagonally, then you push in the diagonal folds and it folds up into a little square. I then inked all the edges with a touch of distress ink. The edges of the paper also look a bit distressed too but that's cause I need to put a new blade in my cutter.
You then glue the four folded pieces together, back to back, making sure they're all pointing the same way.
Each section opens up individually

I then realised it could be hung up by the ribbon but of course I hadn't stuck the covers on the right way for that had I!
Okay, that's it for today, time for tea.
Thanks for visiting.
