Mini Book Necklace Tutorial, Part 1

Today we'll be creating a cute mini book necklace that can hold 6-8 teeny photos (1-1/2" x 2")...perfect for a little girl who loves to keep photos of her special friends close to her heart. Perfect project for a Girl Scout gathering or a birthday party!

To my book, I've added photos of myself and my friends (three are my sisters!) from when I was in the first grade. Oh, gotta love the pin curls! wink


  • Craft knife, ruler, mat 
  • Cardstock and patterned paper
  • Scoring tool
  • About 24" -30” of cording for necklace 
  • 2 beads, optional (cording must be able to fit through bead hole) 
  • About 12" thin ribbon for closure 
  • Very tiny embellishments - stamps, stickers, flowers, etc.
