The story of minibook tips and tricks

I think I haven't shared minibooks here on my blog before. I think this is the fourth minibook that I have ever made. This minibook was supposed to be published in the Paperilla magazine. This is a graduation minibook. My cousin graduated from high school last spring and me and my husband took these graduation photos of her. I wanted to gather the best photos into a minibook.

This minibook was so easy to make! The pages are paint sample cards that I just sewed together.  While making this minibook I tried to think of my best tips and tricks to a person who is making one's first minibook. 

I think a minibook is a combination of repetition and variety. For example, in this minibook all the photos are placed similarly and are of same size. This makes the minibook look cohesive. Another repetitive element here is the word sticker on every page. On the other hand, you want to change some elements on the pages so that they don't all look the same. That's why I have changed the placement of the word stickers and other embellishments from page to page.

  2. That is such a cool gift for your cousin. I have made a few mini books then I put them away and I forget I have them. I love this one with the paint swatches. Even in the mini book your style is present. Love it.
