This past winter I saw a book folding class being held at our local used book store, Cottage Used Books. How cool that we have a used book store 2 miles from our house! And they do book folding classes - a technique that I didn't know about.
First, I want to show some of the folding books they have on display at the book store. Are these cool or what!
What a great way to display your book folding abilities...book ends!!
I probably should have shown my finished book first then shown their folded books! HA Mine isn't the best but I'm happy with it. This is the pattern I chose to make.
This was the start of my book...you can see the 'L' better starting to form! Well, I can!
And my finished book! I think I have the first folded pages squeezed together too much so the 'L' isn't as defined as it could be. But still!!! I finished my first folded book!!! YEA!! Thanks, Jenna!! You are a great instructor!
In the class, we were also given another pattern, which is pages folded and pages cut. Inward/outward folds! It's really unique as well. I only have about 5 or 6 pages cut for the Flamingo so it will be awhile before I get this one finished.
I know they have offered this class a few times, so if you live in the Goodrich/Davison/Clarkston area, check out their FB page for upcoming classes. Or just stop by for a few books!
Kinda fun isn't it! Always good to learn new techniques to have in our 'tool' box!
