New Hobby: Book Folding Art

Book Folding Art

I have seen these books floating around, and always thought they were pretty cool.  So I thought, I wonder if I can do that?  Guess what, I can....It's fun and actually pretty easy and very calming.  So I started a new hobby!  Here are a few of my first creations...they aren't perfect, but I thought they still turned out pretty well.  

If you would like to give it a try, I would recommend this website that i found that offers free patterns.  They have instructions on how to do it too.  I however, decided to do the pattern a little different by doing 90 degree folds, or as close to 90 degree folds as I can.  I think it worked.

Here is an AWESOME website that I recommend.


And the patterns are Free


I downloaded the alphabet patterns to create the READ book.


Harry Potter, just had to do this one.


This is my first try.  Be sure to read the instructions offered.  They are pretty easy to follow.
The first 2 books pictured above, I started using the 90 degree fold option. I  learned that from watching a video.

Try your luck.  Its really fun...and I recommend it to all booknerds.  There are all kinds of patterns to pick, and you can create cool art to give away for gifts!

Let me know if you give it a try. you can tag me on Instagram by @micheleluker or @StalkerMamma on twitter.
