You can make a range of dolls house miniature books and magazines from printed paper or card covers and wood, paper or card 'pages'. The covers can be made on your computer, from free printable book covers, or (for personal use only) from cutouts from magazine advertisements. The same techniques can be used to make books with more detailed 'leather' covers from real thin leather skiver, or pseudo leather made from textured polymer clay. The method to make the miniature books is first make the 'pages' from pages, wood or card, then add a cover. It is a very simple method that can be used to make books of any size. As you become more skilled, you can make more detailed books with printed opening pages, using similar method.

Take a look at the instructions for making the books on the next pages.  If you wish, you can make more elaborate "leather covered" books using the method for making a miniature spell book as well.
