On the TWELTH Day of Christmas....

....I made a teeny, tiny Stocking Stuffer mini! This mini is made from a single piece of 6" x 12" paper or card stock. A few snips, a few folds and VOILA! a baby mini is born!

Score 6" x 12" piece of double sided paper along the shorter length at 2" 4" 6" 8" and 10". Score along the long length at 3".

Cut from edge to center score at 2", 6", and 10" along one side of center score and from edge to center score at 4" and 8" along other side of center score.

Check out the video for how to cut and fold.

Here's a larger version that we will be making on a future Ustream show.

I hope you have enjoyed this years Twelve Days of Christmas projects. I had a lot of fun with it!!

Happy Holidays!!

Just a Note on 12/24/10: OMG! I didn't even know the Meander Album existed until this morning when I read some of the comments on Youtube! GEEZ! I usually do my research but I didn't on this one. The Meander Album is one of those projects that has been around for years it did I miss it!! I couldn't find who originated it...if someone knows, let me know. The Meander Album is a similar concept, but cut slightly differently and makes a 3 x 3 album.

    Hugs, Patti -

  24. Adorable - I have done this with a 12 x 12 sheet years ago. But by folding it a different way you get a portrait "booklet".
    Like your little pockets.

  25. Laura, your book is gorgeous. I am going to need to make one. You come up with the coolest ideas.
