A few people have requested a tutorial on the mini origami book that I posted about a few months ago.

Here is my new video tutorial for the books, it is a little simpler, but if you prefer a photo tutorial, keep scrolling 🙂

I collect miniature books and THIS is a great way for me to design and create something of my own.
So many ideas running around in my thoughts.
THANK YOU.

Hello Chrissy, I LOVE your creations and they are absolutely beautiful! I think it is very clever of you to clip the folded paper to a patterned paper and wrap it around now byeeee

Thank you so much! I love these books and have now made an uncountable amount. Your tutorial is very simple and easy to follow. Keep blogging and go further.

Just a question: Do you happen to know how to a book lock on these mini books?
Like in this picture:

Thanks again. 🙂

You’re welcome! I’m glad they turned out well 😀

You can add the lock by folding 1/4 of the square paper you used for the cover into a thin strip. cut some off for the ‘lock’ the other bit will need to be glued from the inside back cover, the ‘lock’ bit will need to be added to the front cover by cutting 2 slits into the cover and then looping it through and glueing on the back (of the front cover). Hope that helps!

Hi, I’m very new to blogging, so I’m doing a sort of practice blog where I try out DIY crafting tutorials and post my results.

For my very first post I tried out this tutorial! It was a lot of fun and your video was super easy to follow. I have literally zero followers as of right now and I don’t know if I’ll ever get very many, but I still wanted to let you know that my review of this tutorial is out there. If you aren’t comfortable with me using your tutorial for my little blogging project, just let me know. I’ll be more than happy to try something else!

Thanks so much. I really enjoy this whole website :), here’s a link to my blog so that you can see it: http://mjohannahcampbell.blogspot.com/

Wow, thats a great review, I am pleased that it turned out so well! And I am of course happy for you to use the images, I will share your post on some of my social accounts ☺
Your blogging idea is great too, a lot of bloggers do this, for example, How about Orange did that too (with the same tutorial!). It is a great way for people to see some ‘Real’ results instead of shiny examples us tutorial makers post 😀 All the best and good luck with the blog! x Chrissy

I think I started with A5 paper then cut it in half. You can make taller books by tryout out different sizes of paper. 😀

In case you’re worried that the cover paper will rip where you cut the two darts … I cover the plain, hidden side of my cover papers in sticky plastic backing, or, when I think that this will decrease the sharpness of my creases, i use sticky tape on the back where I know the point of the darts for the spine go. Works great!
