lil' blank books

These little books are handmade from your favorite decorative paper. They are basically folded then glued into shape, making them thick, rigid and sturdy. They are the size of 3" x 4" and are perfect as an "occasion" diary or "quote" book. To make, you cut strips of the paper into 4" lengths. Then fold to 3" size, like an accordion. To glue, put two pages together at time, leaving one in between every two you glue, to create the book. On the cover, I attached another piece of paper to create a complimentary contrast. Of course you can make to to any size you may like, 5" x 5" square is another nice size.
