  • Cut 1 piece of felt 3 ¾” x 8” for the inside cover
  • Cut 2 pieces of different coloured felt 3” x 6” for the pages
  • Cut 2 pieces of different coloured felt 5” x 6” for the envelope pages.
    • Fold the felt vertically in half so that you have a 5” x 3” book shape.
    • Cut the top of the front cover down so it measures 3”x 3”.
    • Cut the back cover from the top middle point, diagonally 1 ½ “ on both sides to create a point

Step 2: Cover
  • Decorate the front cover with motifs, diamante, sequins & beads
  • Sandwich two 12cm lengths of satin ribbon in between the inside/outside cover on the outside middle edges
