Maze book

Just a few days ago I read a blog post at It's Molly Smith about her mini maze book album. She had a link to a video showing how to make them and I was instantly fascinated. I knew I had to make one. The inside of the book is made using only one 12 x 12 sheet of paper.
Well last night I sat down and messed up my craft room made one. It's not finished yet because of course it needs something to decorate the front and then all the pages need to be filled. I couldn't wait to post about this though.  It looks pretty plain in this first picture.

Here it is opened up. I stamped on a few pages but that's as far as I got.
These would be great gifts either filled or blank so the recipient can fill it themselves.
Check out Molly's version and then go the video if you want to try one yourself

Yes, the mini album is cute. It was also addicted. I made three of them at one time, each for my kid. The album is perfect for Duke's pictures.

This is way cool and yours is beautiful! I will go and check out how to do it when I have a few minutes.

That really is a great idea. You can put all kinds of thing on the pages. Wish I would take the time to do it. Too many animals to look after. Have yourself a great evening and a better Sunday.

You are getting me into so much t-r-o-u-b-l-e girl! I am NOT supposed to be crafting anything until I finish my monster craft table. Gotta go watch the video though - that little book looks like fun :o)

this is really cute. i actually watched the video just to see what you had to do. this is great for a greeting card. you could even make a little Christmas card. note, i said YOU could make one. LOL and on a ha ha note, if I gave one of these to the men in my life they would put in in a loony bin, i say this because the video showed making one for Father. but i do like it, how long did it take to make it

Woof! Woof! Oh ANN Golden thanks for sharing Molly's video. Great one. So cool. We might have to try it. Lots of Golden Thanks n Woofs, Sugar

It is a fun project... You know, I never knew what they were called... I've actually created ones where I printed pictures of my sweetie pie children (had fun figuring out if they needed to be upside down or not) onto cardstock and gave them to the grandparents (they love that sort of thing)!
Hugs, antonella :-)

Many people who go into mazes never come out. So, are you contemplating getting lost in your crafting? What will that poor, little, loyal, can't-wait-for-you-to-get-home-from-work puppy of yours do for treats? Keep in mind, all of this can be used as evidence at trial. Of course, you would have to be tried in absentia. For you would be lost in your loops and lastings, but the rest of your family will have to live with the shame. Yeah, methinks you have a lot to think about before going out mazing too much, and it may already be too late. A pity, it is.

Sandra wrote me and told me I had to make one with my grandson - she's right - how did I miss this anyway?
