I started some time ago to fold old books into artwork
I made one for the Winter book swap
Here are some others
And with the rest of the pages i can make bookmark or angels or little christmas three or star
Currently i’m making a hedgehog. It has to become some thing like this (not my project)
These are so neat! I’d love to see your hedgehog, when it’s done. Are there tutorials online that you follow to get the result you want?
Yes there are tutorials on youtube but you also can buy the pattern with the measurements for each page. I used one for the read book and the love one.
THe candle holders and the flowers books are more intuition.
I’m trying to make a special pattern with some notes but it is real trial and error
I took a book folding mini-class and have seen those pattern charts and they are mind- blowing! I’m super impressed by your folding skills, and the fact that you are attempting to make your own pattern…… dang girl! Wowza! I can’t wait to see more of this from you, especially what you create from your own patterns!!
The floral ones are gorgeous!
Wow, you’ve created such an assortment of different projects! I love the precision of the “Love” one, and the grunge/cottage vibes of the floral ones. Very cool!
My Aunt makes the ones with the rounded pages as cardholders. These are beautiful! I especially love that LOVE one. So pretty!
Those would be an excellent display in any library. Just gorgeous.
these are so cool. I really want to see the hedgehog when you are done!
And here is one of the hedgehogs (forgot to make pictures of the first one and the parcel got lost by our so reliable post )
And a another project for a secret santa swap. My partner loves everything about frozen. So i made her an Olaf (600 pages and more than 2000 folds). It not bad but next time i have to find a book with thicker paper of fold twice so it had more effect.
Next one is one for 14/02 for our just married couple
the hedgehog is so cute! and Olaf is perfect.
These are insane! They are amazing.
These are so fun, I had no idea this was a thing!
