Cute Little Purse Photo Books

I made three of these cute little photo books - great for a grandma to carry in her purse! So easy to make!

1. Take a 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock and cut it into three equal parts (4").
2. Score each at 4 and 8"
3. Fold each and "work" in the folds.
4. Tape together one end of two of the sheets. This will give you five blocks in a row.
5. Tape the center block of the five to the center block of the one with three.
6. Cut your layering squares as follows: 3 3/4 x 3 3/4, 3 1/2 x 3 1/2, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4.
7. You will find, as I did, the top squares will need to be cut 3 3/4 x 3 1/2, 3 1/2 x 3 1/4, 3 1/4 x 3 otherwise it will overlay the edges more because of the "binding" edges of the cover.
8. Cut a piece of ribbon approximately 16". Tape to front and back before applying the layers.
9. Taa daa! So quick and cute!

Have fun and let me know if you try this cute and easy little book for your family gift this year!
