Hello Everyone! The other day I made these little books with my sister and posted a picture onto my Instagram and my friend Rylee suggested that I make a blog post explaining how to do it.. so here it is!
1. Choosing the book cover –
This is the most important step! Without a cover, you have no book! You can chose any cover you want, you just have to make sure that there is a front and a back on google images… unless you are only worrying about the front cover!! Once you have thought of your cover idea you should be have something similar to this!! Some will be easier to find then others!
2. Putting it onto a word document –
When you have your front and back cover, copy (or save them) and paste them onto a word document similar to below! Depending on how big or how small you want the mini books, size it how you like, making sure that the back cover is on the left so when you print it, it will open correctly!! Leave a small space (once again depends on the size) in the middle for your spine cover!
3. Spine cover –
I found it almost impossible to find the spine covers of books so instead I just used shapes off word and created a plain colour for the spine! Feel free to create a spine but I was to lazy at the time!
There is some books, like harry potter, That come with the back, front, AND the spine cover all in one so all you have to do is put it onto a word documents! Like this one below!
4. Printing –
If you just want to make one little book, go ahead and print, but if you want to make more!! ‘Cause they are so cute, repeat steps 1-4 until you are happy with the amount!
5. Putting the book together-
Cut out your printed books off the paper and fold them so they look like little binders! (That’s what my sister thought they looked like…) and with lined paper, coloured paper or white paper – whatever you would like, open the book flat and trace a rectangle around the paper to cut out and glue inside!! Do this as many times as you want, depending how full ou want the book to look!!
AND YOUR DONEEEE!!!!!
I really hope that made sense and that you have fun making some of your own!! You could also punch holes and make them as little key rings!!
I would love to see what books you recreate, so tag me in your pictures!
