Last week, I decided to make a bunch of tiny matchbook flip books to give to the travellers in my family. They are tiny enough to fit in a pocket and very cute. I have a big box of old map remnants and they came in handy for this project. You also could use any other kind of decorative paper, sheet music, or photographs. Since my maps were kind of flimsy I gave them a coat of matte Mo Podge to give them a little weight before assembling the booklets.
- Map scrap or cardstock cut to 4 1/2 x 2 inches
- 8 sheets of thin paper (like xerox paper) cut to 2 x 2 inches
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Fold the map at one end up 1/2 inch and crease.
- Stack the white paper inside the crease
- Put two staples on the folded over edge to hold the paper in place
- Fold the cover closed and tuck under the little edge you made when you staples.
