We debuted three 5x7 Handmade Book workshops at the Great Lakes Mega Meet earlier this month. The classes were so popular, they sold out within hours of opening registration! But have no fear, virtual workshop kits are now available! Join me to learn how to make a mini album featuring a unique spine structure with a kit and a few other basic supplies.

Let's take a closer look the three kits we have available . . .


5x7 Handmade Book with Woodland

The finished book size is 5.25x7.25". The spine features a 1/4" gap between pages to allow for expansion and bulky embellishments. Choose the Woodland 5x7 Handmade Book kit If you're going for a more masculine or outdoorsy feel.

Baby, Baby

Have photos of a new (or not-so-new) family member? The Baby, Baby version makes a great gift for parents, grandparents, or other family members. The 5x7" size makes it perfectly portable!

When open, the book lays flat. Round the corners of each flap on the inside pages for a fun twist. Enjoy loading up the inner pages liberally with photos and embellishments.


The versatile Flourish 5x7 Handmade Book kit beautifully coordinates with photos from almost any occasion!

The 7x5" pages are perfect for 6x4" landscape photos. Open the flaps on the right side to reveal space for additional pictures and embellishments.

The 5x7 Handmade Book Kit includes:

Page Kit items: (4) 12x12 Prints • (8) 12x12 Plains • (2) 12.25x12.25" Printed Cutaparts • (12) 4.25x6.25 Photo Mats OR (4) additional 12x12 Plains • Assorted Embellishments • (3) Ribbons

12x12 Mat Board
Foam Brush
Printed Instructions

Once you select which workshop kit is right for you, you'll need to gather a few other tools and supplies:

12-inch paper trimmer
ScorPal (or other Scoring Tool)
Bone Folder
Grid Ruler
Accordion Pocket File (optional)
Bookbinding Glue
Needle-tipped Applicator
Foam Brush

You won't believe how easy it can be to create an awesome handmade gift. Each workshop kit includes a link to written instructions, as well as a video tutorial where I'll guide you through the entire trimming, sorting and assembly process, step-by-step.

Choose your favorite theme and let's get crafting!
