My little visitor is returning home this week & I wanted to do a small photo album to accompany her. I first saw this done at Maker Faire a couple of years ago. It was 2 x 2 inches but I wanted to make it a little bigger. Mine is 5.5 inches square.


This is it all folded up


This is it partially unfolded. If you have good eyes, you can see how the folds go, but if you can't, just Google squashbook & you will be hip-deep in tutes. The good thing is that though I have done it with three squares of card, it could theoretically extended indefinitely.


This is it completely unfolded.

I am thinking of doing one with stitched pieces.

Thanks for looking.

Haha, this one will go from Canada to Germany, too! Can't wait to see it in person! This is really cool, and my kids will love it! I will have to google those tutorials and learn how to make that. I agree, this would be great in fabric, too.

What a cute book.  It's a great idea for a LV swap book.  I may need to learn how to do them if I ever have time for a swap again.
