  1. Cut the shell of the book from chipboard using your Cricut and the Mini-Books Cartridge.
  2. Lay the fabric on the chipboard pieces, making sure it overlaps and cut the fabric. You need to do this for both the inside and the outside of the mini-book cover. 
  3. Use a spray adhesive glue to attach the fabric to the chipboard.
  4. Line the edges of the fabric with lace, by spraying the lace with spray adhesive then lay it on the fabric where you want it.
  5. Brush a thin layer of Elmer’s Clear Glue over the top of the lace to prevent the lace from peeling away from the fabric and to get rid of the sticky residue the spray adhesive leaves behind.
  6. Set the cover aside and allow it to dry overnight.
  7. Now begin work on the various interior pages by covering the other chipboard pieces with scrapbook paper, adding stickers, bookmarks, handmade jewerly – or whatever other surprises you wish to put inside the mini-book. Here are the photos showing each page I made to give you some ideas. I took the photos before I bound the book. 
  8. Once the cover is dry you can decorate the front cover as you wish. I chose to add a pretty pin to mine that could be removed and worn if the person who received the mini-book chose to do that.
  9. Once you are happy with the way the cover and all the pages look, assemble the mini-book and give it as a gift or keep it as a special keepsake of your own. I used matching lace to make ties to assemble the mini-book.
