Folded Book Decor

Have any books lying round? Turn them into folded book decor! Use as centerpieces or shelf decoration.

This particular book is definitely not one of my faves. At least it can be used for crafts!

You will need:
  • Book that is better off becoming a craft instead of staying a work of (in my opinion, not-so-great) literature
  • Hands
  • Time

  1. Crease the binding of the book in multiple places.  
  2. Open book to the first two pages. Fold all four of the corners inward. Crease well. Turn page.
  3. Fold the next page in half (lengthwise). Crease well. Repeat with two more pages (three pages total!).
  4. Repeat steps (2) and (3) until you reach the end of the book.
  5. Go back to the beginning of the book. Unfold the TOP LEFT triangle and the BOTTOM RIGHT triangle. Do the same for every pair of corner-folded pages. Do not unfold the pages you've creased in half.
  6. Find someplace to showcase your fine work!
