Making "Accordian-Folded" mini-watercolor books


I learned how to make these Watercolor Folder "Mini-Books" --easy to slip into your purse -- from Brenda (a friend from Watercolor Journaling Class).  She is a "dear" person and reads lips perfectly to learn at Class.  She had one of these that she had made and I loved making them.  As you can see, you can make up your own sizes.   Let's see, how many Watercolor Journals do I have now????

Cute little books. Wow - it could be hard to stop making those. But why stop - they would make cute gifts.

They were fun, and sooo easy--and I used up some of my "extra" pieces of Book-binding Paper. I think I saw online that you could add a ribbon by gluing it on the middle of the back and bring it around and tie it like a "gift".

I fasten a ribbon on with just a dot of glue on the back cover almost to the spine and tie it at the front edge/opening. It is just easier to tie there than on the flat surface of the front cover
