Maze Book how to and new year's revelations

I don't do new year's resolutions usually. It just makes me feel like a failure. This year, though I thought I'd write down revelations (get it: New Year's Revelations). That was enough of an exuse for me to make a batch of little maze books to write this astonishing mind-blowing brilliant revelations. Such as, for instance, I really don't want to learn to crochet. Ever. Let.It.Go.

I offer you this little freebie: How-To Make a Maze Book.
1. Print out this page:


2. Watch this video to make the How To Maze Book (without snickering! This is my first video and Bess was my camerawoman and darn it! we did a good job).


3. Gather some paper (any size any color, graph paper, recycled paper, etc.) and make as many maze books as you'd like. Vary the cuts and folds using the How To Make a Maze Book. These little books are perfect for your 2009 Revelations books or less exalted purposes such as shopping lists, notes to self and so on. Make a bunch and keep them in your pocket, purse, car, office. Carry them everywhere, give them to your friends, tuck them into your journal when they are filled up. Have fun.

Woohoo! I just stumbled across this....sooo cool, thank you!
I'm starting to play with making my own journals and this is so unusual, I can't wait to try it with watercolor paper. And maybe add covers? Lots of brain exercising here....
And your video is great...
