Imagine that its Wednesday again and that means that its another Origami book folding tutorial! I hope you are ready! I love doing my origami book folding late at night while watching TV or on the phone. I always try to keep my hands busy. So if you are like me and want to keep your hands busy late at night give it a try.

You will need to take the first four pages and fold them from the top down to make a triangle.

Make sure all four pages are folded the same way.

The next four pages will be folded differently. The bottom page will be folded higher than the top. The triangle will be higher on the page. Fold four pages the same way.

The next fold is super easy. You will fold up from the bottom of the up. Again fold four pages.

The next four pages will be folded into a triangle in the center of the book.

Now fold four pages the same way you did at the beginning of the book.

Fold the top of  next four pages down more than half way and fold the bottom of the page into a smaller triangle. 

Continue to alternate the fold of the pages in the same sequence until you reach the end of the book. The book I use only had 200 pages so it did not take that long to make this art folding book.
