Mini Gift Books

I made these little mini books for each of the kids in my group on the recent field trip I chaperoned. Logan loves having little books like this filled with pictures of friends. They are so simple to make and a great way to use up some of the paper you aren't in love with anymore.
Take a 12x12 piece of paper and cut it in half. I used 3 pieces of paper per book.
Adhere prints back to back so there is a print on each side. Fold in half, using a bone folder to create a sharp crease. Assemble the order of your book, laying the prints open on top of each other. Hole punch all the papers in the crease at the top and bottom of the book and then use a ribbon tie the pages together. And that's it, you are done!

Thanks chica! The kids LOVED them when I dropped them off at the school yesterday. Other kids in the class were a tad jealous. I may find at the next field trip I have a list of kids wanting to be in my group! :)

Or you might become the photographer and the book maker for all field trips. You might have started something here.

So cute and so simple. What size did you make your photos?

4x6 inches for all of them, though I had to trim them a bit to fit on the page.
