How to Fold Your Mini book

Mini books are so much fun! You only need one piece of paper, a few folds, one cut and ta-da you have a seven page minibook!

To make a minibook see this video below, or the instructions below that.

 

Instructions for folding your Saint Jude Mini-book:

Print your  Mini Book (one sided on white paper):

Fold paper in half the long skinny way, with the print on the outside. Crease well.

 Unfold, and refold in half the short, fat, way with the print on the outside. Crease well.

Saint Jude Minibook instructions

Unfold, and fold the outside edges inward (like a pamphlet or lapbook). Crease well.

Unfold, and refold in half the short, fat way again.  Using scissors, cut along the crease in the middle, stopping when you meet the intersection of creases (see the picture below).

  Open up at the cut, and fold into a book with the cover in front.

      Sorry, I’m not sure what the title is. It was a free sound clip that was part of the video app I used on my phone.

    Thanks so much. It took me two or threes tries before I got the scissor cutting part and the folding correct but what a great idea! There is so much more we can do with this mini book idea. Blessings!
