Father’s Day Mini Book

We are a book loving family and the kids make their own books often. I already had the words for a Father’s Day Printable and so we made it into a mini book too. It’s really very easy to make, and would make a wonderful gift/card idea for Father’s Day.

3. Cut out each box, keeping the corresponding pages together.

4. Putting it all together is easy, but there is a bit of a process involved, which I have demonstrated in the video below. You need 7 pieces of cardstock for this mini book. First loosely put it all together to resemble a book. Place each matching page together with the text/border pages facing inwards.

5. Between each double page layer (the design side of the paper pieces should be facing together), put a piece of cardstock.

6. When the book is all ready to go, it’s a matter of gluing all the paper pages on to the cardstock so it reads like a book.

7. Stick the cover page on the front and decorate if desired. We used cute banana patterned duct tape to line the cover and my daughter decorated it.
