Tiny Winter Walk Book

I found this tiny book as a downloadable file in Camille Riner’s Etsy shop last week. I had never made this type of book, so I just had to try it. It’s made from a single sheet of 8 1/2 by 11″ paper which you print on both sides of the paper.

This Winter Walk book measures 1.5" square when closed.

When you purchase the book, you get 2 .pdf files. One is for the book itself and the other is the instructions. Be sure to read the instructions carefully. I was so excited to try out making the book that I printed out two separate pages before I realized that I was supposed to print the second image on the back of the paper.

One of the nice things about purchasing a digital file is that you can use it multiple times. I tried making this book with a couple of different papers. I found that I liked a 32# text weight matte presentation paper. Camille suggests a thin matte photo paper, but I didn’t have that so I decided to use what I had on hand. I also tried a heavier paper, and although it worked, I liked the lighter paper better.

I love tiny books. I guess they’re officially called miniature books. There’s something about the intimacy of miniature books that I enjoy. This was a fun book to make. I may need to go out and get the paper that Camille recommends and see if I like it even better than the one I used.
