Tiny Folded Book (in progress)


Several months ago, I took a bunch of books to Office Depot and asked them to cut the books into smaller pieces. I've worked with the little pieces off and on over time, but nothing has worked really well.

I decided on Thursday that I was going to dive in again. I stayed up and designed a tiny heart pattern. I made up the template and started marking my little book. Here's the first bit folded. It's another linked repeating pattern. Tiny!


One of the problems I've encountered with these tiny books is the lack of clean edges - it really makes a difference trying to mark a pattern when there is text in the way.

I've got some ideas in the works to overcome that problem. I'll see how quickly I can bring them to fruition so you can see!
