    The tissue tape makes this book sooo easy. A little “love” letter that is dated and signed would be perfect for one of those pockets. It would become an heirloom to share with your children! If you made one every year it could become a tradition! Thanks for the video. Great as always!

    Thanks Tim. Great project for this snowy day!

  43. I haven’t made one of those books in ages; we used to call them “meander” books, because as you fold you meander your way around the paper. Very very fun, and using the tissue tape to finish it off is brilliant!
