DIY Mini Book!


So I finally decided to make the mini book first….. the tougher version!!!

Please to remember people, that I do this to increase my patience levels…. So if you find that the final product is not as neat… well you know why!!!! Even the photography…. I would just like to say that my HTC Google Nexus camera is doing the best it can but my shaky arms fail it once it a way!!!!! Ha ha ha!!!

But over and above everything, I HAVE FUN!!! And that matters most, don’t you think?!

SO lets start…..


Getting all the materials together is number one. Make a list before you start, because I guarantee you getting up from your work station is really annoying. 

 
Now I have done this tutorial a little different from my previous ones, I have actually worked it all out on Photoshop to get the images and directions together. It was a lot more hard work than my usual method, hope you guys like it!!! 





 

The following is the binding process. I made three markings and used them, you could make four or even two depending on the size of your page. 

 

BS and FS before your minds wander simply stands for Back Side and Front Side!!!!!!  Its just to clear any confusion…. I think I was just so confused while making it and during the photoshopping!!

(ps: click on image to make bigger)







I know my book covering isn’t too neat, the edges of the mountboard can be seen…. But well, you live and you learn…..

 



The whole process including the half hour fevicol drying time took about, two hours…. Since everything is so small you have to be extra patient and calm.




 

Will I make another??? Hell yeah!!!!
