How to Make a Miniature Book
When you download your free modern miniature book covers set from me you will notice a PDF file to print and cut with scissors. And, you’ll find a PNG file that you can use as a print and cut with your Cricut or Silhouette.
How to Print Then Cut With Cricut
To print and cut with your Cricut simply start a new project. I cannot explain how to do it with Silhouette, but there are plenty of tutorials on YouTube.
- Then, tap Upload and choose your PNG image.
- Next, tap on Complex and Continue.
- On the next screen ignore everything and tap Continue.
- Then, tap on the Print then Cut image and you’ll then see anything you’ve uploaded in your library.
- Choose the book cover to insert into your new project. Cricut will resize this, so after it’s in there, go up to the width (make sure lock is on) and enter 3.39 inches (the height will auto adjust).
- Now, tap Make It and Continue to go to your Print options.
- Send to Printer and find your printer. I do turn on Add Bleed and I Turn on Use System Dialog (this will bring up the Print System Dialog behind your screen so move it away).
- For printing, find the best settings. I use Epson Premium Presentation Matte Paper and an Epson ET 4700. So I choose Premium Presentation Matte and High Quality.
- After it’s done printing, I align it on my cutting matte and choose Heavy Cardstock to cut them out. All of the printing and cut settings will vary depending on the materials you use, your blade, and your printer.
Next, stack some plain copy paper and trim to the size of the book. Once you have plenty stacked to fit inside your cover, add some glue to the spine of your paper stack and hold in place with a binder clip or clamps.
Once the stack of the paper spine is dry, glue it to the inside spine of your new book cover.
It’s that easy!
