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!
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!
