Step 1: On a piece of chipboard, draw round the largest hexagon die, and cut out after adding an extra 5ml on all side.
Step 2: Glue onto Kraft card, and once dry draw a 1cm hexagon around the chipboard piece.
Ste 3: Cut around the hexagon shape, and using a bone folder/burnishing tool train the card to fold over the chip board piece
Step 4: Cut the triangle pieces away, remembering not to cut all the way to the point, so the chipboard does not show once the remaining card is glued over.
Step 5: Glue all the tabs into place
Step 6: Using the two largest dies cut out 7 hexagons, then cut a 2cm strip of card, scoring it at 1cm all the way down.
Step 7: Cut the strip down to make 2cm squares and use them to attach the hexagons together to make a mini accordion fold book.
Step 8: Using the 2 largest dies cut 14 hexagons out of patterned paper.
Step 9: Stamp onto the hexagons with black ink for extra interest, and edge the with distress Ink.
Step 11: Using the small die cut several small hexagons from patterned paper and glue them together to form a larger hexagon, you need 2 of these
Step 12: Using a medium sized die, cut a hexagon from patterned paper, and stamp a word in the center
Step 13: Edge them all with Distress Ink, these are the toppers for the cover
Step 14: Glue a piece of ribbon along the back of the book, and glue one of the patchwork hexagons over the top
Step 15: Then glue the other patchwork hexagon onto the front cover, along with the stamped hexagon
Step 16: Tie the ribbon around the front of the book to tie it closed.
