Item details

Like to color, cut and fold? This artist’s book pattern teaches you how to create a “color it yourself” lotus book. This book is more than just learning how to make a book because you get to have fun coloring all the pages first. The books in the images above are ones I have already colored. I tried to make the interior designs of snowflakes and the gusts of wind interesting and meditative to color.

This book is a beginner project; it should be quite easy if you have done these things before but a little more of a challenge if you haven’t done a folded craft. I have tried to make the directions easy to read with step by step diagrams and concise directions.

The pattern includes five A4, letter size PDFs:
3 pages of step-by-step illustrated directions
2 pages of a two-sided illustrated book to print out, color and assemble

A reminder that this is not an actual assembled book but a book to print out, color put together. Most testers found it took a little over an hour to color and then a little less than an hour to assemble, depending on experience. To assemble the book users will need to provide: 2 small pieces of compressed board like the back of a sketchbook and a few simple tools: a craft knife or scissors, glue and a bone folder or spoon.
