Minibook Video Tutorials

For those who need some visuals — here is a collection of video tutorials.
I watched every single one plus more.
Criteria for making the list – clear instructions/visuals, materials list provided, sound/picture quality, and speakers voice.

Envelope Album — although in French, the pictures tell the process.
All the envelopes are handmade however, the idea can be applied using regular envelopes of any size put together the same way.

Squash Book — three squares of paper, three folds (in half, turn, in half again to equal 4 sections, turn, one diagonal fold), layer the folded paper, add covers (1/2 inch all around larger than your paper squares), glue down ribbon on the front, add a 3D embellishment, tie the book shut.

Tag/Flag Book Dawn shows you how to create this accordion pleated spine 6 x 6 minibook.
