Get Well Soon

Our only gentleman couldn't make the club this month as he is poorly but we made him a Get Well Soon card.

January Craft Club - First Edition

When the Tadworth sister club of the Ashtead Card Making Club finished at the end of last year I offered to carry on the smaller sister club in my home.

Well today was the day for our first meeting and I showed the ladies how to make a mini book. These books are sometimes called meandering books due to the way you fold them up.










I used the Tim Holtz version made from one sheet of 12x12 paper, and we made one together along with lots of chat and laughter.


We used various one sided patterned 12x12 papers and some Washi tape to bind and secure the edges.


The book has 7 pages altogether (including the covers) and openings for 3 tags too.

Other tools used were a bone folder and scissors and a bit of glue for the covers as well.

A fun time was had by all.


Here's the Tim Holtz video on youtube if you want to have a go, and a link to my first attempt at this project some years ago, Original Mini Book.
