Morning guys.......Diane here with a mini album friday project for you using "Star Of Wonder"

You will need

Star Of Wonder stamp

 1: Cut ONE piece of blue card 9 1/8" x 5" and score at 8" and 8 1/8" down the 5" length

2: Cut FIVE pieces of blue card 8" x 5" and score each at 7" down the  5" length. Now glue all FIVE pieces together along the 1" end upto the score line. Then glue to the piece of blue card 9 1/8" x 5" upto the 8" score line. 

3: There will now be a 1" flap on the left hand side, add glue to this and wrap round and over to the front upto 1" score mark. This now binds the mini book together.
