STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut Mini books base template out of lightweight cardboard ( I used a cereal box) I set my blade depth to 5 and pressure to 4. Then cut out the same template out of black cardstock, don't forget to change your blade depth and pressure to 3. Glue the black cut out to the cardboard (to the colorful side if using a cereal box) and fold into shape. Add sticker embellishments where desired or as shown.
Then cut out the inside folds out of themed decorative cardstock for the pages. If you want more pages cut multiple of the middle layer ( the layer that goes between the other page layers) glue these together and glue them inside the book as shown in the Mini books digital handbook.
Then in photoshop shrink your favorite photos down and print them out on photo paper. Cut each photo out and glue to desired pages or use photo corners. To add special sayings or notes type messeges in photoshop and make sure they are the right size. Print them and cut them out and glue them to the pages as you see fit.
