Mini Booklets

These mini
comp books
come 3 to a pkg
for $1

I measured the pieces
and cut them out 
with the cricut machine
then applied modpodge

 using a

I sanded the edges and corner

Now for the binding
I cut the piece
with the cricut machine
and attached with modpodge

Before I put them on I rolled them
so it would be easier to put around the curve

Once they were on
I covered it 
with modpodge
letting it dry overnight
standing up

 Now on to embellish
applied the ribbon
with double sided tape

for this one I cut a paper doily

Once it was to size
I applied modpodge 

Once it was where I wanted it 
I dabbed it into place
because I was afraid it 
would tear

 and allowed it to dry

added ribbon

and some glitz
(the glue will dry clear)

A few other designs

 Some I didn't embellish
and a few I'm not sure
yet what to put on them

I will be selling these
so I have put them in sleeves

    1. Thanks! while waiting for my ins agent to get back with me I found out if you are a member of the OH Art and Craft Guild I can get ins through them for abt 450 - agent call backed and a broker can get it for 547.
