"I created this mini book using Graphic 45’s Bird Song paper collection. The papers are truly beautiful and unique to the Asian culture. The mini book contains pocket pages, created with six (6) 8 ½” x 11” card stock. Really fun and quite simple to pull off! I created a video tutorial that I hope will help get you on your way to creating one of these mini books to keepsake some of your most precious moments!" -Arlene
