Recipe 3 d book

(If you can understand Check out book –Miniature Scrapbooks by Taylor Hagerty)
Can be any size I choose 12*12
To make album: 

  1. Begin with four 12 by 12 squares of paper. Fold in half to form a rectangle open up and fold other way.
  2. You should have four squares. The bottom left one fold up to meet the center and then cut off bottom triangle. Then On Right square on bottom measure one corner in diagonal motion ½ inch and same on other side and draw line in between. This makes a tab.
  3. See chart below chart A



Cut                                                                                                < -- cut out leave tab

  1. Do this on all 4. Then fold Tab under Triangle and will make a pyramid like thing. Glue make sure tight. Then Fold close like would a book. Triangle folds up and in. Do this on all 4. Then can add 12 inch ribbon to cover for closing the book. Then adhere your cover to the front. .
  2. Then have fun decorating can decorate however you wish. Baby showers, weddings, cookbook like I did, any way you want. Then I used my scraps to put pockets in it. Use the triangle you cut off and put glue around border and make sure it’s tight. Then you can slide in your embellishments – I cut tags and put my recipes on them.
Open your book and Let sit out for people to see should sit in a circle on your table. Can email u it if u send me your name on facebook since didnt work on here for chart just let me know

Things You'll Need

  • Cardboard or heavy paper squares (for the cover and back of your album)
  • Scrapbook paper (cardstock and patterned paper)
  • Adhesive
  • Cutting tools (scissors, paper trimmer, etc)
  • Embellishments (metal embellishments, ribbon, stamps, stickers, etc.)
  • Ink pads
  • Writing tools
    • 1
      Decide what size you want your album such as 3x3, 4x4, 6x6, etc.
    • 2
      Cut your cardboard to fit the size of the squash book. For example if you are making a 6x6 album then you would cut the cover and back of the album about ½" bigger so it fits over the middle of the squash book.
    • 3
      Cut patterned papers to cover the cardboard. You want the paper to fold over the covers so it is completely covered. You are going to want about 1" at each end to fold over the cardboard square.
    • 4
      Set your album covers aside and select 3 pieces of 12x12 cardstock. The 12x12 squares will fold into a 6x6 album.

So this my blog hope you like it and now check out  talented , Amy Voltz
