Well its been awhile but I have another article for you -

Pretty huh? But the real magic is how it works inside with all its fold out sections -

So, here's how to make one for yourself -


Card cut into the following dimensions –



1. 21cm x 30cm folded in half to create the main card section. (we’ll call it section A)


2. 20cm x 28cm folded in half to create section B


3. 13cm x 28cm folded in half to create section C


4. 13cm x 24cm folded in half to create section D


5. 12cm x 22cm folded in half to create section E


6. 10cm x 22cm folded in half to create section F

To assemble –



1. Open section A and adhere section B to the centre of the right side, ensuring it opens to the left.

2. Open section B and adhere section C to the centre of the right side as well, ensuring it open upwards.

3. Open section C and adhere section D to the centre of the bottom side, ensuring it opens to the right this time.

4. Open section D and adhere section E to the centre of the left side, ensuring it opens to the left.


5. Finally, open section E and adhere section F to the centre of the right side, ensuring it opens downwards.

6. Decorate as desired. I chose to use patterned paper to coat most sides of my pages in addition to cutting photo mats from the leftover card to adhere to different pages ready for my photos. I also attached a strip of ribbon below the patterned paper covering the cover to tie my book closed.
