  • Difficulty Rating: Beginner
Fiskars mini book cover

Make this fun mini-book for show and tell! You kids will love sharing it on their first day of school.

Heading back to school and meeting new classmates can be intimidating for young students. Help them share with new friends by creating this mini-book that they can help with! We’ve made it easy by including printable journaling strips. Each page also leaves room for a photo or a small drawing.

Wouldn’t it be great to start a tradition of creating this “All about Me” mini each year?

Instructions:
 
1. Create an accordion book – trim cardstock into 6” x 12” strips, and fold into half. Attach edges with washi tape.

2. Print the PDF of journaling prompts onto solid cardstock, and trim into strips.

Round corners, and adhere to each page of the album (you may want to have your child fill them out first!)

3. Use Fiskars punches to create embellishments for each page – this is a great activity for the kids!

4. Adhere a photo, or a small drawing, to the blank space on each page.
