This mini album was unfortunately too small for my new butterfly buttonhole technique.
I am planning another mini photo album for Leipzig, and maybe some other cities or themes.
Something that worked well was the construction of the pages with the tiny tabs and the mounting of the photos. Before I bound it the pages lay completely flat.
Although a little bulk from the thread is generally desired, I am not happy with how thick the binding thread is compared to the scale, so I’ll look out for a different thread. It also turns out that I don’t really like the look of the buttonhole for this size. Maybe I’ll try a limp leather construction for the next one (something I already considered for this booklet), or a binding with screws, taking split pins as a substitute for the screws. I’ll have to test whether they are long enough to really fasten this book block.
