At Christmas, Tim bought me a lovely Owl necklace. It was a bit of a theme this year… all the girls in the family got owl necklaces… which has no bearing on today’s project EXCEPT… my necklace came with the cutest little 8 paged booklet. Taking it apart I realized it was a standard 8 1/2" x 11” piece of paper, folded, with just one little cut. Since that time I’ve made a million of these. I keep them in a basket, along with some colored pencils, and whenever the wee ones want to make a mini book, they are good to go. They are also great to keep tucked in your bag as a ready amusement for children, or to jot down a few notes for yourself. Another nice thing about them, since only one side of the paper is seen, you can reuse printed paper that would have just been thrown away, into useful pads of paper.
This is definitely a project suitable for children to make, just as soon as they can fold a piece of paper neatly. I’m including the directions on how to make your own Teeny Tiny Booklets HERE. I like to glue the ends of the paper with rubber cement but this is not necessary. This will probably be the fastest craft I ever share on Wee Folk Art, but it is skill well worth learning. It is fun to use some of the specialty papers with subtle designs on them, and you could even cut convert used wrapping paper into little pamphlets. Enjoy!
