I got this book idea from a mini book that they made on the Alaska cruise (I think) that a fellow demo showed me. I made this in a class with my my kids and nieces and they all loved doing them! They are aged 4-10 and then 4 adults also. It was easy enough for everyone! I thought this would make the cutest little scrapbook or just a little book to draw in.
The directions to make it are below!
For the pages of the book you need one sheet of 12" x 12" cardstock. You are going to score it in one directions at 2", 6" and 10". Score in the other direction at 3", 6" and 9". Then you are going to cut along the red line I have shown going through the center of three of the sections.
Now you are going to fold up the two inch sections all the way across. These are the pockets that will hold the removable pages.
Now fold in half on the center score. You can accordion fold the end strips to make the pages.
Fold these on both sides. This will give you all of your pages. You are going to tape the backs of the pages together where the three red arrows are shown pointing.
Now all of your pages are together and you are ready to decorate. This is all from just one sheet of 12" x 12" paper!
You will need a 4"x4" piece of DSP to tape to the back of the end pages to make the front and back cover. The insert pages are 3-3/4" x 2-1/2". You need 8 of them. The belly band is 1" x 8-1/2".
Then just decorate however you would like and you are finished! I used The Open Sea stamp set from the Summer Mini catalog with matching DSP.
