Afternoon Tea with Fleur

Hello everyone,

Denise here with my third project using the Fleur Kaisercraft collection. My brief was to make a 3d project so I decided to make a little fold up book. These are not new and you can find instructions on the internet, but I will explain how to make it in this post.

Using White  Kaisercard  cut three 15cm squares and Ballet cardstock cut two 8cm squares. Make sure the squares are accurate so that the book folds neatly.

Take the three white squares and fold each one in half  widthways then fold again lengthways and open out.

Next, fold diagonally just once then line the three squares up as shown below with the diagonal line going vertically and one corner square of each overlapping the next one. Apply glue to the three overlapping squares and stick together.

Now pinch the top horizontal folds inwards, the middle outwards and bottom inwards then press the top and bottom squares down flat.IMG_0876 IMG_0877

Stick the pink squares to the top and bottom squares as the covers.Now the book is made, time to decorate it with your photos and papers.

I used papers from the  6.5 x 6.5  paper pad  and stickers from the Sticker Sheet  and Collectables Pack  to decorate together with photographs. The triangles were made from  7cm squares that are cut in half diagonally. My photos were also 7cm square ( I cut mine down from ones that measured 6×4 inches )

This is a really cute little book and quite effective when folded and opened. Once you get the idea you could adapt it as a larger one too.

I really enjoyed making this and hope you like it !
