Mini Book with Cricut
Annmakes books too! I have a love of books. Reading, collecting and writing in books and about books wasn't enough. I had to learn to make some. Using the Cricut and the art cartridge "Mini Books" makes little book making fun and quick.
For this project I tried to use just my Cricut and the 6" x12" mat. I was able to cut out the cover, spine, and several of the pages. However, I had to use my Cricut Imagine with its larger 12x12" mat, to cut the envelopes and folder that are available. So for anyone with a regular 6x12, you can still use this cartridge but not for the larger cuts. Also, by using the Gypsy I was able to manipulate the images to fit better onto the mat.
From then on, by using the 12 x 12 mat and some colourful papers I made this pretty book.
This was an easy project that looks like it was complicated. Gotta love that! In another blog I will show some other of my handmade books. I hope you have fun making these books. Thanks for looking.
