Mini Zine

This project makes a zine thats 8 pages. (including front and back cover) The most important part, is when you fold, line up all the edges as perfect as you can, and crease well. These work great for little fliers or comic books or whatever you want. If you photocopy the paper after you have done all the designing, then you can have all the copies you want to distribute.
