10 Minute Diversion - Origami Book - Book No. 0006

OK, grab a coffee, a piece of paper about 12 inches square, and run this video.

Here's one I made earlier.

Book No. 0006 - 1.5x1.5 in (4x4 cm)

To give credit, I originally saw this on Folding Trees blog.

What an absolutly delight, thanks for sharing.

I should make some for my bookshop, that is my dollshouse bookshop inspirered by the book/film "84 Charing Cross Road". Only they would have to be a bit smaller, I better practice first ;O)

PS. E-mail me if you want a Guernsey pound note for your little books.

Thanks Lori, I'm sure I'm not the first to post it! My trick was to keep stopping the video, and running it back to try to see what is going on. My covers of the book turned out far too big compared to page size, so i must have gone wrong somewhere! Simon
