I started with very large paper (12"x18") and folded it to 4 1/2"x6". On the cover I used Hero Arts Stamps and Studio 490.
The paper is glossy and hard to stamp on because it will smear if not given enough time to dry. I hardly ever have the patience to wait. These two pages especially had to be adjusted to cover the smears.
|Fold into 8 section and cut as shown.|
|Pinch the center folds and pull away from the center.|
|The pages start to form and a book emerges.|
|Two pages are floppy because they are folded at the top and the sides are edges. I like to glue these pages together or in this case I used tabs to keep the pages looking neat. Hopefully this makes sense.|
