Book Folding

I thought I'd get all my book foldings together.  Here are some old ones and some you haven't seen yet.

These are what started it all.  I just HAD to have a tree!

Once I started, there was no stopping.  They were so much fun to do!

My hubby surprised me with this one, made from one of his old journals from work.

Now it is time to see what other one I can do! Another one using a journal.

This one is small but fun!  Would be great for place holder or recipes.

Next ones are called cylinders.  The one on the right, back is the first one I did using a paperback book and leaving some pages on each side.

The second one I did was another one with a journal.  It is the one on the left.  Used all the pages but kept the cover.

Love this little one!  I wanted to try one completely using a book but I'm out of paperback books!  And since I can't get out for a few days, I used a small tablet that I made (one is shown in the first photo of these) and double folded the pages.  Love it and can't wait to do this with a real book!

I'm using the first one I made for photos and other various items.  I'm thinking about adding tabs to the tops of a few pages and using one of these for coupons.  Wouldn't this look awesome in a vintage book with vintage photographs?

This is what the journal one looks like on the side.  I have each of the journals set back into a cabinet shelf and one hanging above the cabinet.

This one looks nicer in real life.  I'm thinking it could be fuller but I used the entire journal.

That is one I'll have to keep working on!

This is the last one I've done and OMG, I love it.  This was made from one of those travel guides you can get from AAA.

Yes, there is one that is missing.  That great big giant one that wouldn't stand up by itself.  I just couldn't take it so I let the dog rip it apart.  Fun for both of us!

Looking forward to getting out to the thrift shop for more books!

I love looking at all of the different shapes and sizes you have come up with. It really looks like it is a lot of work and very time consuming. You must have a lot of patience!!! Thank you for sharing
