Ever since I made my first Folded Book Art from an old book a few years ago, I'm hooked. My first book art was created as a birtday gift to my girlfriend. After which I found out that Folded Book Art makes a great birthday gift, anniversary gift or wedding gift. Actually, it's suitable for just about any occasion.
In this tutorial I'll get you started with the method that I have created to create your own folded book art in a clear and easy way. You can find much more patterns on the following website: http://www.foldedbookart.com, and they all work in the same way as the pattern down below. So if you know how to do this pattern, you can do every pattern.
You'll need the following things to get started:
- An old book with enough pages in it to fold a pattern into.
- A pattern that allows to you mark the pages of a book.
- An object to create sharp creases in the pages of the book. You can use your fingers, but I find the following tool much better in creating sharp and good looking creases. See below where to get it.
- A ruler that measures in centimeters and millimeters. If you don't have one, you can check below where to find a printable ruler.
