CREATIVE BOOKMAKING: Workshops with Jeannie Hunt in schools, libraries and community arts.

Easy-Fold Books

Starting from a single sheet of drawing paper folded into eight segments, you can create dozens of variations of simple cut-and-fold origami book forms. All you need is scissors, glue-sticks, and coloring tools. Simple yet elegant structures that can include doors and windows, pop-ups and pockets, roof-lines and theatres. Perfect for a classroom bookmaking corner. We'll also learn how to attach extra pages or covers. Here are some sample projects:

One sheet with a zig-zag roof cut folds into....

... a standing house-book, with stories inside and out.

Peek-a-Boo House with lift-up windows.

Suitcase book with pockets to hold mini-booklets.

Ocean Book with removable fish puppets.

A four-fold accordion with photo-flaps...

lift each flap and read the story hidden below.
