When I got back to the cottage, I opened the little book up and saw that the book was made from one sheet of 8-1/2x11 paper, folded and cut a certain way, and refolded to make the book.
This poetry project is from a group called Origami Poems Project and they have a website here:
The website has a lot of info, including directions on making your own little book.
I tried the same method using my scrapbook supplies to make my niece a little birthday memory book.
I started with one 12x12 sheet of Jenni Bowlin patterned paper. This pattern is one of my all-time favorites:
and some miscellaneous embellishments:
I folded the 12x12 as they show on the website, and embellished each section with my Jenni Bowlin embellies. I kept in mind which section would be the cover page, etc :
I cut and refolded the piece
to create the cutest little mini:
Supplies: Jenni Bowlin Aunt Grace patterned paper (from Family Tree line), vellum Embellished Butterflies, Family Tree Journaling Cards and mini papers, Vintage Sew-On Buttons, Chipboard butterflies, Butterfly Stickers, Red Label Srip Stickers, Pearl flowers, Banner Stickers and chipboard, and Crepe Paper Ribbon.
