As promised I have a few details for you on making your own little photobook, like the ones I showed in the last blog post.
And the outside cover was 14cm x 29cm. This one is scored at 14cm and then at 15cm to give me a 1cm spine in the centre.
Measure the spine of your photobook before you make your cover in case you need to adjust the size of the spine. i.e. more pages will mean a wider spine and less may mean you can make it slightly narrower.
1. Start first with the size you want to make your photobook. I use the size of the photos I am putting in to determine that. The biggest photos I had (once cropped) were 13cm x 10cm. So that is why I went with the 14cm size for my previous photobooks.
For this example I have used different coloured cardstock so you can see what I am doing.
I have 10cm x 20cm pieces of cardstock. Scored in half to give me a 10cm x 10cm square page.
2.Glue page one to page 2 as shown.
3. Then Glue the next two pages. Continue on for as many pages as you need.
4. Here is a back view to show you all the pages joined together.
This is a good time to measure that back spine to check how wide you need your scoring to be on the front cover.
Do not glue the spine
I hope you found this mini tutorial helpful and it will inspire you to make some of your own.
Let me know if you do.
Be sure to come back next week. I have some interested class cards to show you.
