One 3,97" x 3,22" piece of cardstock
Scor-Pal™, or other scoring tool
Sticky Strip™ tape or other strong adhesive
Big Shot™, or other die cut machine

Schritt 1
Step 1
Für das Innenteil nehme ein Srapbookpapier 30 x 15 cm und falze es bei 7,5 cm im Wechsel.
For the inside from the booklet, score your 12" x 5,90" piece of scrapbook paper or cardstock on its long side at 3",6",9”.
Schritt 2
Step 2
Dann dreht ihr das Cardstock um und falzt auf der kurzen Seite bei 5 cm.
Turn cardstock piece and score the short side at 2".
Schritt 3
Step 3
Dann falzt ihr die Linien mit einem Falzbein gut nach.
Fold the score lines with a scor tool.
Schritt 4
Step 4
Das Innenteil wird jetzt bei der 5 cm Falzung an den Seiten festgeklebt, dass sind dann die Innentaschen für die Teebeutel.
Then you apply Sticky Strip to the right and left side of the 2"score fold, as shown.
Schritt 5

Nun sollte euer Buch so aussehen.
Your book look now, as shown.
Schritt 6
Step 6
Jetzt kommt das kleinere Papier für den Einband zum Einsatz. Ihr falzt es bei 3,5 und 4,6 cm. Der Einband wird jetzt an das Innenteil geklebt.
Now score the little paper for the book cover at 1,37 and 1,8. Add the book cover with Sticky Strip and place it on the inside that you fold before.
Schritt 7
Step 7
Ich habe das Ribbon erst danach befestigt, ihr könnt es aber auch unter den Einband plazieren.
I place the ribbon after the sticking with the book cover. You can place this before or after, suit yourself.
Schritt 8

Jetzt müsst ihr das Büchlein nur noch nach eurem Geschmack verzieren und die Teebeutel nicht vergessen!
Now your booklet is almost finish, create the inside and cover how you like.
