Folded Book Art - Best & most clear Tutorial available

Picture of Folded Book Art - Best & most clear Tutorial available

I just absolutely love creating my own folded book art. It's such a fun way of re-using old books and give them another purpose.

I've searched and searched the web to find any tutorials on how to do it and i just couldn't find anything. Untill one day i found a website called foldedbookart.com which offers already made and custom patterns.

On of the patterns they used to have was this little heart sign. For me this was a real good way to get started as it's quite a quick pattern to do and the result still looks great.

In the next steps i'll explain to you how to fold this heart into a book. (I used a picture from their website for the front image)

Completing this tutorial can be done within 45 minutes.

Step 1: Collecting the materials needed

For us to be able to create folded book art we need a few things:

- We need a book. It's best to use a hardcovered book, as these books will give the best results when displaying them.
- We need a ruler in centimeters, as these patterns are displayed in centimeters
- And ofcourse we need a pencil to mark the pages.

I can not believe how easy this was to do - I am now scouring the house for hard back books and looking for more complicated patterns. Thank you so much. x

Thanks, I have just made one for my wife for valentines day, she loves this kind of thing!! I had a slightly thicker book so ended up folding 2 pages for every one noted here to make it slightly thicker and it turned out great.
