"ZOO" mini album by Kathy

Hi, it's Kathy today, and this time it's a mini album I have to show you

All this month we're sharing projects made using papers from the Funky Daze CD and I hope you've taken advantage of the April special offer and grabbed your own copy for the amazing price of just £1

Anyway, It's been ages since a I dabbled in the wonderful world of mini books so I thought it was time - and what a great way to show off lots of the paper designs too ;)

Well, having made the Starburst card for my last post here, I'd sort of fallen in love with the colours in the "Half Way" section of the Funky Daze CD and I couldn't resist using them again!
This is a really neat little book design, where the pages have a simple zig-zag formation and are all folded up into a wrap around cover

Materials and Tools

Papers: "Half Way" from the Funky Hand  Funky Daze CD
the designs were all printed on textured white Bazzill card
Letters cut with an X-cut alphabet die
EK Success border punch
Thin leather thong for fastening
Ink for edging

So here we go with a picture show - from the photos I think you'll be able to see how it works. I hope you like it

There's enough room in this one for 15 photos, but the clever way this book is made means you can have as many pages as you want, then just make the cover to fit around them.  Mine is quite small, only about 8x10 cms, but again, its easy to adapt for the size of photos you want to put inside.
The last photo shows how it looks when the  book is lying flat when it's all folded in and fastened up 

Don't forget, this CD is on offer in the SHOP for just £1 at the moment so don't miss out! Here's a quick look at just some of the designs you'll get on the CD

We'd love to see what you make with Funky Hand goodies too.....
Thanks for visiting today
