Snail Mail Squash Book Tutorial

Creating a Snail Mail Squash Book Tutorial

By PaperedChef, April 26, 2021

In this series, I share how to create Squash Books using Stampin’ Up! cardstock, the Snail Mail designer series paper, and several other coordinating products. In Part 1, I share how to score, fold and attach 3 pieces of cardstock. In Part 2, I use the ScanNCut for creating the triangles and other shapes for embellishments. In Part 3, I share several ways to cover the outside of the Squash Book or Mini Album. I use the ScanNCut for creating octagons to fold over the cardboard covers. I share how to wrap the covers and to use ribbons, sliders and/or belly bands for closing the albums. I hope you enjoyed this series and will create and embellish a Squash Book using your craft supplies.
