|Here is a booklet tutorial that I showed Pamela from Cappuccino and art Journal and the other friends who gathered at my studio a few weeks ago. I used a page from an old atlas from the the library book sale that I went to with Pamela and Leslie.
|Put the image that you want on the outside of the booklet face down on the table. Next fold the paper into thirds. You can measure if you like or eyeball it like I do.
|Make a nice crisp fold using a bone folder. If you don't have a bone folder use a credit card to help crease crisp.
|Open the paper and fold in half and crease your fold.
|Take your pair of scissors and and cut from each side of the paper to the first fold.
|You will now fold the corners in to the first fold making a triangle.
|Repeat the folds to all corners of the paper.
|Fold in the sides of the paper on the fold line.
|Fold each end to the center fold.
|Here is your finished envelope booklet!
|Here are three more envelope booklets made from different atlases We made
these at the party I hosted in my newly cleaned studio. I hope to add some more
envelope tutorials soon. I have a lot I want to share using repurposed materials of course!
photographs for this tutorial and for all her technical help as well. Her help
and encouragement will get me posting on a more regular basis!
