I loved all of the book folding information. However I do not like the template to mark where the folds are. You have to eyeball the 1/2 marks. Multiple pages have the same folds and they aren’t even. There’s also two #42 and 43 in the pattern. Not worth the $$!

Was very easy to follow. This was my first time doing any kind of book folding. Thank you!

Turn books into 3D art

Books are ubiquitous. Whilst some have a love for old or antique out-of-print books others relish in the feel and look of a polished new copy. Book folding provides the chance to use books, both old and new, in an original art form without cutting or gluing the original book so that ultimately it can also be enjoyed by the reader.
The art of book folding combines the love of books with the love of paper crafting. The 3 dimensional sculpture that is created depends on the pattern that is chosen and the type of fold that is used.
