Little Book Of Rooms

The inside page folds of this miniature book create the appearance of five little rooms. The weight of the 8.5x11 Quad Print included in each Club Stamp kit is perfect for folding.

8. Place a page plain side up on your work surface with the diagonal fold in the lower left corner. Cut along the horizontal crease from the right edge, stopping at the vertical crease.

9. Cut from the top edge of the paper, about 1/2" to the right of the vertical fold to remove a rectangle from the top right corner of the paper and to create a small flap.

10. Miter the corners of the 1/2" flap to create a tab.

(The page will look like this when complete. Repeat for all remaining pages.)

11. Flip the paper so the printed side is facing up. Now would be a good time to decorate the "room". (Hindsight is 20/20.) Apply adhesive to the 1/2" tab.
