I just started my very 1st book and decided to do a somewhat mini 4th of july themed its about 7.5x7.5

Before i started i didnt really know anout the chipboard and ive been just putting pages back to back.

Will it hold up? Should i finish it that way?

I'm not sure I understand what you're doing. Can you take a photo and link it here?

I dont think you would be able to tell in a pic. So rather than taking a piece of chipboard and putting each page on either side of it (which i understand you do?) Im just gluing my pages back to back so no chipboard in the middle? Is that okay?

I'm not sure if it will be sturdy enough and may not hold over time.

I agree, it won't be sturdy and it will be prone to warping and bending.

I say don't worry about it.

My first mini was just 12x12 card-stock cut into 6x6 quarters, punched and held together with rings. They aren't even back-to-back, I just glued stuff onto each side of the card-stock. That was 3 years ago and after a lot of handling, it hasn't warped too badly, and most things are still stuck.

I like how everything is touchable because it isn't in pockets. I like the dimension. And if it isn't perfectly flat then that shows it is loved.

Enjoy doing what you're doing. View it as a learning curve - if anything doesn't work with this mini, do it differently next time. Don't let the "rules" hold you back. There are very few real rules in scrap-booking!
