Best Creation Inc Mini Book Blog Hop!!!

The Best Creation Inc Design Team is teaching you how to make a super simple mini book that uses only one sheet of paper to create the book itself and then scraps to complete it!!  The mini book was a make n take at Winter CHA in Los Angeles this year and it was a huge hit so we all decided to create different versions of the same book to share with you!!  I have seen them all and you are definately in for a treat!  The Best Creation Inc Blog does have the basic directions and then all of the blogs you will hop to have different variations.

So here is one way to create your Mini book:

I used one sheet of paper and decided to use the graphics on the paper as part of my design:
Cut one sheet of paper in thirds
 Fold each piece in half, two with the part you want showing facing in and the other with the part you want facing out.



Put the sheets together with the backsides against each other


Adhere the backsides together like this....



Round your corners.  This book was originally staggered as well, the first page is trimmed 1 inch and the second page is trimmed 1/2 inch.  I chose not to do this with this book because I didnt want to lose the scene on the paper.
So thats my book to start with and this is what I did with it:

I made pockets with doily's to hold pictures....I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry to adhere the embellishments and Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots for the butterflys, love that stuff!!



back


I backed the photo's with papers and added some tags that would show while they were in the pockets







And there you have a fun quick little book that can be made for any occassion with lots of variations!!!  I hope that you enjoyed my little book...and that you will move on to the next blog and see what Liz has done!
