Folded book art is a labor-intensive and mathematically precise art that normally requires tedious measurements on a page-by-page basis. 
The following book art is a short-cut method of getting to almost the same results as the ruler-and-pencil method. Instead of measuring each page, this method uses a striped printed pattern that is inserted behind each page and used as a guide for each fold.

<p>I loved your tutorial on </p><p><a href="http://www.diypics.com/simplified-folded-book-art/" rel="nofollow">http://www.diypics.com/simplified-folded-book-art/</a></p><p>It was fantastic. I made the black-and-white lines with page numbers the white line. This made it easier to keep track of the page I was on. </p><p>Thank you, very much. </p>
Dang, those are really good! I like your idea of putting page numbers in the white stripes too!
Thank You

<p>Thanks for sharing. I love it. </p>
<p>so nice</p>
<p>Hi I was so happy to find this link for creating your own pattern. However I wondered if you had used this free trial? I printed out a simple word HOME to start of with, with a book of 350 pages. Ive printed it off and there are quite a few spaces which threw me, then also i realised with the O and E I would need extra pages wouldnt I? I really wanted to get into this but this has confused me, any help really appreciated... thanks</p>
Check out my tutorial on diypics.com for making your own pattern. I have several videos on there to show you how to deal with the spaces, the O and E and stuff like that: http://www.diypics.com/simplified-folded-book-art/<br>It will be tight getting a decent HOME from a 350 page book. Try to find one at least 400 pages if you can so you can dedicate 100 pages (50 folds) to each letter--give or take.
<p>Thankyou so much for your reply, I will let you know how i get on </p>
<p>wow... this is amazing!! great video and thank you marta for inspiring! =)</p>
My pleasure, Bliss! And thank you!
<p>Great idea!</p>
Thanks, TG!
