Challenge #5 - Mini starbook

Hello everyone! Time for another "fairies-with-tude-how-to"!
This month is a mini star book
It is so easy to make – effective – and a cute way of housing special photos etc.
Starbooks look really complicated to make - some involve stitching and all crazy sorts! = If you want a quick little effective starbook, then look no further. This is a really simple way of creating a mini photo album, and all sizes can be adjusted, increase them for a bigger book, it couldn't be easier!
You will need:
2-3 sheets A4 card = 1st colour
2-3 sheets A4 card = 2nd colour
1 sheet A5 card = any colour or patterned cardstock (off cuts)
1 ½ meter of ribbon or cord
Embellishments of choice

First you will need to cut 6 pieces of card 8cm x 16cm
Fold these in half to create a V shape
Cut 6 pieces of your second colour card 8cm x 13cm
Fold these in half to create a V shape

You are now ready to attach together. = See slide show

The front and back covers of the book are 8cm x 8cm
Cover these card squares with patterned paper (or cut 8cmx8cm from the patterned cardstock instead)
Attach ribbon between the front cover and Starbook for a neat flush finish. (see slide)
When opened out the book can be tied into a star shape
