Admit it. When you clicked on this article, you didn’t know what to expect. You were probably thinking something like I know how to do the easy bookfolds. Why do I need to know how to make words or letters? My answer to this is: you don’t. You don’t even have to know how to regularly fold a book, but it’s fun and it looks cool. My hands are not going to come out of your device to force you to read this article, but I think you might find it interesting, nonetheless- especially if you have an old book around and want to turn it into a new form of art.  

 

Procedure:

Step 1: Choose a letter to fold. Any letter. Any letter at all. I’m going to choose R for my example.

Step 2: Google search your letter and print out the picture of your letter in block format. Make it large. 

Step 3: On the printed sheet with your letter, draw a bunch of vertical lines going through your letter.  The more lines you draw, the clearer the letter will be.

Step 4: Get an old book to use for folding. Make sure you ask before using it. THE BOOK WILL BE DESTROYED AND YOU DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR A NEW ONE.

Step 5: On the first page (or wherever you want to start your letter), fold the bottom corner inward to match the bottom of the line. Do the same for the top corner.

Step 6: Repeat Step 5 for a while. Soon, you may realize that there is a gap between the lines. Here is what you do:

Continue folding until you have folded all of your lines. Then, you are done! If you have any other questions, please comment and I’ll try to answer them! Thank you!
