Item details

With this custom three-pattern set, you can fold the timeless words Faith, Hope, and Love. In Christianity these are known as the theological virtues, because they are gifts of grace from God.

St. Paul mentions these virtues in his first letter to the Corinthians: "And now there remain faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love" (1 Cor. 13:13). And again in his first letter to the Thessalonians: "Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father" (1 Thes. 1:3).

These Faith, Hope, and Love patterns sell separately for $4.99 each, but when you buy this three-pattern set, you pay only $9.98. You get three patterns for the price of two.

What you get:
1. PDF files of the Faith, Hope, and Love patterns to download and print.
2. Free PDF file of my how-to guide, "Traditional Book Folding: a Step-by-Step Illustrated Guide." This 68-page, fully illustrated e-book includes 3 free, printable patterns for you to fold: Rabbit, Petite Heart, and Ice Skate.

My graphic designer and I developed the font used in these patterns especially for book folding. The elegant, classic-style letters are large enough to read easily, but they have page counts low enough to make them quicker to fold.

If you're new to the art of book folding, begin by downloading and reading "Traditional Book Folding: a Step-by-Step Illustrated Guide." You'll receive a free PDF file of this 68-page e-book (electronic book) with your purchase of the Faith, Hope, and Love patterns. I wrote the e-book especially for beginners. It contains my simple, straightforward methods that will take you from novice to book folding expert. It includes 3 free patterns to get you started on the road to book folding success: Rabbit, Petite Heart, and Ice Skate.

Upon payment, you'll be able to download the Faith, Hope, and Love patterns and the e-book, so you can begin folding right away. The patterns include photos of the completed books. You may print the patterns as many times as you want to fold them. You may also print the e-book. Compatible with both PC and Mac, the PDF files display well on tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. They may not display well on the small screen of a smartphone.

I personally design and test-fold all of my patterns. The photos in this listing show the actual books that I folded using the Faith, Hope, and Love patterns. I used the methods that I teach in "Traditional Book Folding: a Step-by-Step Illustrated Guide."

Although you may not sell or distribute my e-book and patterns, you may sell any book(s) you fold using my e-book and patterns.
