I’ve never made a mini-book before. Funny, right?
I wanted to do some sort of fun project about all the food we ate on our trip to China. I started by taking a picture of everything we ate, beginning on the plane ride. Mr. P and our friends were gracious in not touching anything on the table until I got a shot of it – they even reminded me to take photos!
Shopping in Beijing, I found this awesome little book.
I printed the food pictures as 2-inch squares when I got home, and then left a 1/8-inch white border when I cut them out.
I was a little concerned that the thickness of all the photos was going to mess with the binding of the book, but the finished product is actually pretty cool!
I sat in front of the TV with these supplies and went to work.
I used a date stamp to stamp each page with the date the meal corresponded to.
Then I taped in each picture and wrote a few words.
I also wrote divider pages for each city we were in.
Not bad for a first attempt? I like how minibooks have an effortless look, so I hope I succeeded.
I’ve included a bunch of pages below so you can look at them. I used over 80 photos, so this is just a sample!
