In celebration of HALLOWEEN:
A little "Pocketmod" book.
(A "pocketmod" is a book that is made by cutting and folding a single sheet of paper.)
I have published other "pocketmods" with generic folding instructions.
This time, I am going to try to show the method that I use to get the "tightest" folds...and I am now realizing how HARD is is to show this kind of thing!
Perhaps it is time to learn to do Instructables videos!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Print the PDF
Step 2: Fold 1: a "Hotdog Fold"
Fold the paper in half, with the pictures on the outside, as shown.
Use your thumbnail to crease it.
Step 3: Fold 2: a "hamburger Fold"
Open the paper back up.
Fold in half a second time, this time going the opposite way. Crease.
Open back up.
Step 4: Fold the "hotdog" Again, Then Fold in One Side.
Re-fold the "hotdog" shape.
Then carefully fold in one side and crease.
Step 5: Fold in the Other Side.
Fold in the other side and crease.
Step 6: Open. Fold Again. Cut.
Open it up again.
Repeat the "hamburger fold."
Cut as shown.
Step 7: Flip It Over.
Step 8: Fold the Cover Page Inward.
Fold in the cover as shown. Crease.
Step 9: Open Cover Back Up.
The next fold will be the two "pages" shown partly lifted here...
Step 10: Fold Just Two Pages.
From the previous illustration, carefully select just a single layer of paper and bring it over.
Step 11: Fold the Top Down.
Crease yet again!
