Can I Make it? Yes You Can, Series

This is a detailed instruction e-leaflet, demonstrating how to make this book. This version includes a Designer Cover based on an original painting, White Blossom, by my artist sister, Sylvia Burgoyne.

If you are experienced in Origami or bookmaking, you will find this book fairly straightforward to make. Similarly, if you are a good crafter and take care over accuracy, you will also be able to make the book.

It does require some expertise in measuring, cutting, folding and glueing. You also need a bit of a feel for paper.

The original design does have one major drawback in that it relies on the strength of the folded paper to keep it from tearing. You would need to use something like Tyvek or Elephant hide.

My version is supported which makes it more versatile as you can then use any type of paper without fear of it coming apart. Once you have made one version, you will think of many others.

I have done a lot of experimenting, primarily using Konnyaku starch, to help strengthen weaker papers, which is another way of getting round the design fault. However, the process is lengthy so, in general, the supported version is more useful, especially if the book is to be used often.

The e-book will be sent as a PDF file and may be printed for personal use.
