Back to School Fun Tutorial with Graphic 45

What's sharing on today's Graphic 45's blogpost is a short tutorial on how to create these cute mini notebooks using just a single sheet of printer paper in just 4 simple steps...

Here are the steps:

Step 1: Fold an A4 size printer paper into 16 parts and cut across the paper as shown, leaving the last part uncut..
Step 2: Gather and fold the paper alternatively into a mini accordian book... Distress the edges if prefered...
Step 3: Wrap around the book with kraft cardstock... This will be the cover for the book... Glue/tape down the first and last part of the paper onto the insides of the cover. 
Step 4: Embellish as follows... And you're done!!!

Final size of the mini notebooks measures 2.25" x 3"... Some of you have asked what is the size of A4, it's one of the international ISO standard paper size mainly used in Singapore and UK, as well as in some commonwealth countries... It's actually bigger than US letter size paper which measures 8.27" x 11.7" (21cm x 29.7cm)... If you can't find any A4 size printer paper within your region, you can use letter size or sizes close to A4, just that the notebooks will be smaller... However, the steps remain the same... I hope this helps...

Have fun!!! Cheers!!!
