Zinia's Accordion Minibook

Hello fangerines! It’s Zinia here and today I want to share with you a little minibook I created with the new Hustle & Heart collection by Amy Tangerine!


The idea came to me when I first saw the square cut apart sheet that comes in this collection. I thought that these 3x3 squares would be perfect as pages for a minibook. I decided to work in an accordion mini cause it’s fun and cute.

To create the base of the minibook I used two 12” long strips of paper and I cut them down to 3” wide. Then I folded my strips twice into an accordion shape and attached them together to make my minibook longer.


I really wanted to keep the whole project very simple and time friendly so to simplify the process I used one photo and one 3x3 square from the cut apart sheet for every spread.


To embellish my pages I used a combination of Hustle & Heart as well as a few bits from Oh Happy Life collection.


Although I wanted to keep things flat and avoid extra bulk on my pages, I couldn’t resist using the gorgeous suede bows from Hustle & Heart. They are my most favorite embellishment ever!


I also had a lot of fun with the clear stickers. Even though I usually prefer cardstock stickers, the sticker book from Hustle & Heart is absolutely amazing! There are a ton of pages and you get a many gold and white stickers which can be stuck on top of dark patterns and surfaces.
