a minibook of fruits and vegetables






This is a very simple way to make an 8-page minibook. Any size of paper will do as long as you can divide it into eight equal-sized blocks. Note that pages 1-4 are the reverse of pages 5-8 (the top of each section meets at the center line), and that pages 7 and 8 will be your book covers. Fold on the broken lines, and cut on the solid line, which extends for only the connecting line between the four middle blocks.

I made my etegami minibook by taping the etegami cards together to form eight equal-sized blocks, leaving the connecting line between the four middle blocks un-taped to make the equivalent of the book pattern shown.

  1. Wonderful. I make that book all the time, but didnt think of taping cards together to make a postcard sized one. Thank you for another great idea.
