Step 2: Cut the Beef

Time to use the sisccors do what the captions in the picture tell you.
This is so nice! One of the greatest paper tricks I've known! One of them is making a 3D pyramid in a quick way. I know you didn't ask :).
this is awesome!!! just tried this out... how did i ever manage to live without this!!! thanks!!!
Nifty instructable - looks kind of like the 'slot and tab' binding in Alisa golden's 'Making Handmade Books' but with a different method of cutting the paper. Nice!<br><br>You can adapt this for thicker paper by making diamond cuts instead of a square slot, and cut triangular wedges from the top and bottom instead of slits. Basically you just make the openings bigger to allow for the thicker sheets.
Thought I would help with the words of how to do this.<br /> <br /> Bend (fold but don't crease) the second sheep of paper length wise.<br /> Slide it though the slit made in the first sheet of paper.<br /> Unbend the second sheet so it's slits fit in the first sheets folded joints (connections).<br /> <br /> This is a cool idea of how to make a book I like it.<br />
couldnt have said it any better. thanks lifeforce
Thanks Gundam Co.!<br />
Nice! I love it!<br /> -PKT
:)&nbsp;I&nbsp;lovee this method of &quot;book-making&quot;.<br /> <br /> My teachers in middle school used it a lot.<br /> Thanks for reminding me :O&nbsp;I&nbsp;could totally do this for my niece.<br />
Thanks so much for this incredible way to make a staple-free book! I am using the idea to make a birthday card for my little grand-daughter. I want it to have four pages but I didn't want to use staples since they're not safe for a little person. Such a wonderful and safe design -- thanks again! P.S. -- you're right the "putting it together" steps are hard to describe in words but the photos do the trick.
:P HAH! jk nice man!
Nice man, <sup></sup> &lt;----- asian eyes!<br/>
May I suggest having a picture for your intro step (this way it will be more catchy to any random passersby) Otherwise not bad, keep up the good work. Purduecer
