Grace fell in love with this craft and had great fun with Paige creating tiny hinged diaries for all her poetic needs.
Step One: Dig through the garage to find large unused hinges (though the shiny new brass ones are the prettiest).
Step Two: Cover the outside with a bit of contact paper or paint if you wish.
Step Three: Fold some paper accordion-style, gluing the first and last pages to the cover or securing it by folding the contact paper over it on the inside flap (as Grace did in the photo above).
Easy to make and fun to have. A great treat for those who have secrets to keep and secrets to share.
