Wrapping Halloween

I had a great time using my 7Gypsies Binderie (Debby’s Dream Studio...20% off) to make a mini-book about several years of Halloween. What is unique to me is that is actually turned out okay! Those who know me or have been hanging out here know I struggle with mini-books. This was great fun.

I used the Binderie and the Starter Kit that comes with it as my base. I went with black cardstock for my center. Hey, it’s Halloween! I have three sections representing three years. For each section I actually cut one sheet 5” by 10 ¾” I used my Fiskars Border punch to one end of the long sheet. I scored so that the page folded in half at 5 inches. I cut one page 5” x 5” for the insert page. Each section then had 6 pages.

The advantage of doing the book this way was I could easily work on each section with it’s own unique look. AND the side of the book looked smooth with the three different folds. The Binderie actually made it easy to get each section to match perfectly. You can see the book as it is open is even across the bottom. Now this may not be new to you, but it made doing this mini-book fun! I hope you enjoy.
