folded books

So, I have been trying my hand at something new.  Folding books.  I have to say that this is one of the cheapest hobbies there is to get into.  The supplies are a ruler, a pencil, a pair of scissors, and a used book.  Patterns for different  things abound in any theme you can imagine, and even the ones you pay for a pretty cheap.  Pattern makers will make patterns for you if you can't find exactly what you're looking for, and they can even custom make a pattern from a photo of your pet or loved one.  

I decided to start off with a very simple and basic heart.  The book I grabbed didn't have enough pages to complete my heart, but it was enough to let me know if it was something I wanted to continue trying to do.

Then I moved on to a cat's face peeking from the side of the book.  Several of my friends said they can't tell this is a cat, but I still wasn't put off.

Here is a simple dog's paw that I folded.  I think I am going to give this one to my vet.

Finally I felt ready to attack something a little more complicated doing a cut and fold.  I am going to cover this one with a cute dog themed paper and send it to my sister who recently lost her dog.

I'm moving on to even more complicated ones now.  It's quite fun and easier to do that you might expect!

Worked on more birthday cards today.  This one was easy and fun.  Stamp and emboss with white, then sponge on inks and stamp same images in darker color.
