Get to know your friends and family better with a Get-To-Know-You mini book. It's me, Sandra, and I'm sharing some inspiration how to make one of these adorable books.
I decided to go for a mini book that gives you more flexibility with the contents and the number of pages. I grabbed a mini clipboard album from the 2013 Maggie Holmes Signature line that I had in my stash. The binder rings allow you to add more pages later on.
I cut different sheets of patterned paper and a thin acetate sheet for the cover to the size of the mini clipboard. And one by one, I started to build the pages. The fun thing about the Get-To-Know-You mini book is an integrated string-tie paper album that I attached to the third page.
You can add small pages to the inside of the string-tie album. I used a black pen to draw lines onto white cardstock. The pages can be used for more personal information that are not visible at first sight.
Things to ask
In addition to asking basic facts like name, age, date and "my motto", you can also ask questions like: What's your best memory? What are you wearing at the moment? What are the top 5 things to bring to a deserted island?
You can even use a small glassine bag that holds a strand of hair and put it into a small pocket.
Furthermore, you can ask for all things 'favorite': favorite color, friend, game, dream, etc. A patterned paper with lines is a great alternative to just plain white cardstock.
Add a shaker pocket
The final page is a decorated shaker pocket that holds sequins, golden hearts and a cute little paper pocket (for even more secrets and secret dreams). I cut the paper pocket with my cutting machine. It has the shape of diving goggles.
As I said in the beginning, using binder rings is a wonderful way to stay flexible with your mini book creations. You can add more pages later on.
I hope you like my Get-To-Know-You Book inspiration. Have fun creating your own special book to get to know your loved ones better. Yours, Sandra
