Little squash book, using leftover 'Figgy Pudding' papers. I only took a few photos on New Years Day, so a mini book like this is an ideal size for them. Finished book measures 3 inches x 3 inches, with the covers ever so slightly bigger.

Tutorials can be found.



and HERE

The book is really easy to make, and there are lots of tutorials on the internets, those 3 are just the first I came accross when I googled, I think the third one has a 'how to' video.

Most squash books only use 3 sheets of paper for pages and 2 for covers, I used 7 for the pages and another 2 for the covers. Making my book not quite so squashed... I used Basic Grey-Figgy Pudding 6x6 paper pad. I had bought a couple of these the year before last to make Christmas cards, and had a few pages left over.

Embellishments include, Postage stamps, stickers,rub-ons,stamped images,vellum quotes and sticky backed ribbon. Journalling was handwritten on strips of linen card. The photos are from new Years Day, when my family met for lunch in a hotel not far from us. I printed out the menu choices for the day on small strips of linen card, and stuck them in too. thankfully I was able to find the menu still online, as I would never had remembered it. I added photos and embellies to both the front and the back, using 14 photos in total.
