Item details

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.

This pattern allows buyers to fold ELEPHANT into a book (like the image). Full instructions are included on:
Choosing a book
Quality of Paper
Understanding the parts of a book
Starting & Finishing options
Calculating the Start-point of a book
Preparing your Template
Following the Pattern and Folding the Pages
Top tips for a successful outcome.
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 350 Pages. The pattern height is 94mm.
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.

For those new to this art a selection of designs are displayed to help your understanding and build your confidence in book folding.

This product is a .pdf download using the paper template method.

This pattern is lovely except that numbers 85 & 86 are repeated although the measurements are right. There are three more numbering errors: 129 & 130 are also repeated. 127, 128, 167 & 168 are missing entirely Once I sussed this out the rest of the pattern went well
