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.
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 !
Firsly I used a sheet of Licorice weave cardstock as the base of my layout. Then I used a combination of papers to mat on to the card base. I used XOXO ( the pink side and the stripey side ) together with the pink and gold spotty Loveable paper. I decided to sew some stars on to the pink floral side of the Loveable paper so I pierced two stars then stitched them with some green thread.
