It's been a little while since I shared a handmade book. Here is one I love to whip up when I need a quick gift. Nonscrapper receipients love them as they are ready to add standard sized photos too. Here is one I made before Thanksgiving so it would be ready to add a few pictures to right after. Here is a quick how-to:
Cut 7 sheets of paper to 6X6.75 with the longer length as the vertical measurement.
Tip: I suggest using thick double sided papers for you pages. This is a good project to use your fancy embossed, flocked or glittered papers with as people will really get to feel and see the textures. As opposed to when you use them on scrapbook layouts that will be kept inside of plastic page protectors.
The possibilities are endless when you have the basic steps down as you can change the dimensions to whatever suits your needs. I usually keep the inside pages simple with just a photo and maybe a little writing to keep the book from becoming too bulky. Let me know if you have any questions.
