To anyone and everyone looking to make a neat project, here's the perfect one! Making miniature books is easy and simple and it leaves you with a neat functional book in the end. I hope you have fun with the design and if anything seems confusing I will be glad to clarify. :D

***Note, =pencilandpaperaddict informed me that it's best to staple the pages in sections rather than all at once. This prevents the inner pages from being longer than the outer ones...I forgot about that because I usually just trim the pages after they're stapled. ;)***

It never occurred to me to staple them.

When I make them I put the sections of pages ( usually about3 folded in the center to make six pages)
through a sewing machine or do it by hand.

This method of yours cutes the time down quite a bit, one could make a mess of books this way. Very nice tutorial!

:nod: It never occured to me to sew them! I guess they have the same effect minus the time factor. :D

If you ever make some, I'd love to see them! :hug:

I saw them! Your books are amazing! Much more pro than my minis - which do fall apart if roughed up too much. The binding. I'd like to try something like yours - the thickness surprised me. I didn't think a mini book with that many pages was possible. :love:

I've made a thicker one not too long ago actually. Haven't posted pics yet. the ones I have up are just sketch paper, thread, clear silicone as adhesive and cardboard for the cover XD

:wow: Wow, that's still a lot nicer and more technical than mine! I go for more redneck approaches. LOL ^^;
