The pictures are the mini book gift I made to celebrate my Sister Ruby Anniversary.
This book makes a great gift or just to record an event that a standard layout doesn't have the space to show.
There's no hinges or chipboard to buy its made with;
3 12by 12 sheets of patterned paper for the pages
1 12 by 12 sheet that you cut out a rectangle of 10cm by 15cm the rest can be used to help decorate
1 12 by 12 card stock to make the inserts in the pocket but you can stick down the pockets and not have the extra pages.
A piece of ribbon to about 12 inches to 15 inches long to secure the book.
You may need another patterned sheet to help decorate.
If like me you buy a collection of papers you always get ones you don't like much I use these to make the book with a possible nice one for the front. By the time you glue in your pictures and decorate you can hardly see the ones underneath.
Here's some links to show others events I've used them for.
