The template and pattern sheet are laid out for you to print off and use each time you wish to fold a book with this design.
You will need a HARDBACKED book with at least 160 Pages. The pattern height is 105mm.
In just a few hours you will have a book of folded art that will amaze both yourself and your friends. Lovingly prepared these books make the perfect gift – especially for those people who already love books. Indeed when folding books intended for gifts the art can be expanded by not only choosing the book suitable for the receiver of the book but also to fold the book in a design that is complementary to the topic of the book.
In this guide you will learn how to generally fold books, from basic to advanced designs, with styling and finishing options explained along the way. In certain instances, you will learn how you can optimise and modify the included templates to customise them into more bespoke designs.
