About: I am an artist living and teaching ART in NYC for over 30 years, and I am a CZT, Certified Zentangle Teacher. I love to explore all sorts of art making both in my teaching and in my own work...check out my sit…

This is a fun and easy way to make a unique book of basically 18 pages while using only one sheet of paper.

Step 1: Supplies

All you need is the paper, the size of the triangle book naturally depends on the size of the paper.

I used 18"X18"

a pair of scissors, a ruler and a pencil.

Step 2: Folding the Triangle

First fold the paper in half long way, hot dog fold. The fold again, into a square shape. Fold back one half then the next forming a pyramid shape.

Step 3: Cutting the Triangle

Use the ruler to draw a straight line across the bottom edge to create the triangle shape. Cut along the line

Step 4: Unfold and Re-fold

open the paper and along ONE fold line cut to the center spot.

Next fan fold each section of the book. You now have a triangle book that can be read backwards and forwards.

Step 5: Turning the Pages

Each triangle page of the book can be decorated any way you choose. You can turn the pages or open it flat , it is also two sided.

Step 6: Arches Paper

This book was printed on both sides using a luxurious piece of Arches BFK printmaking paper. Printed first then folded and cut.

Step 7: Writing in Your Book

The triangle book can be used for anything, writing, collage, old photographs.They also make a very nice personalized Gift/Card.

Have Fun
