 This clever little book is made from a single sheet of paper. It's a wonderful structure that can easily be enlarged, reduced, or even changed in configuration depending upon how you fold and/or cut it. The version pictured below will be taught by Mary Elizabeth Nelson (aka Emmy). Emmy suggests that you first print out the PDF on regular copy paper in black and white to make a mock up during the workshop. Afterwards you can print it on better paper in color. After you RSVP for this workshop you'll receive the pdf to make the book shown below.

Emmy's beautiful calligraphy is featured
on this friendship book.

Tools Needed:

  • Black & white printout of Emmy's pdf design
  • Cutting mat
  • C-THRU gridded ruler 2" x 18" or 2" x 12"
  • Bone folder
  • Pencil with eraser
  • X-Acto knife
  • Scoring tool

Here are more photos of the structure using different paper/designs.

In these examples plain paper is used for the book
 with different papers placed in the pockets.
