Here's a new craft idea i learned it's called book folding. I occasionally saw it in store displays and I found it fascinating. I could never figure out how they made them, then a couple of days ago I took a class and they showed me how it was done. It can be a very tedious job and mind numbing, but the outcome can be fantastic. I use them as decorations on my dining room table and on my fireplace mantle. They are so easy to make and convenient if you find yourself hating the idea of throwing a book away. I love to read and throwing a book away should never be an option. So here is a great way to keep using those books you no longer want or you can go purchase bargain books at your local bookstore. I love all my books and I just can't see myself damaging them so purchasing $1 books is the next best thing.

|Let see if you can do this!|
First, you want to start with using a paperback book. Tear off both covers from the spine.
2. Fold the first page into a triangle.
4.Again make a triangle on the next page.
5. Now do a 90 degree triangle from the bottom of the following page.
6.Keep alternating and repeating the pattern until you get to the end of the book.
You can make different pattern depending on the fold of the page. The sky is the limit. I hope you have fun with it. Please do post your pic of what you came up with.
