Serendipity is a wonderful thing. I had been working on some book folding templates that would be quick (relatively speaking) to make as gifts. The serendipity comes in when I saw a request for a JOY template from a reader. She asked for blocky and plain, but I had a few made so I sent them all. Seems better to have choices.
I compiled the ones I have into a single PDF. Grab it here. just print the page you need.
I have a very busy day, but I hope I can take the time to grab a book at the charity shop and maybe give one a go myself! If so, I’ll be sure to share. I think one of these could be accomplished in a few hours. A book that is at least 8 inches tall would be prefect, and as to page count, I haven’t worked it out myself yet! All the Os and Ys will be double-folds for sure, but no 4 or 5-fold areas that I can identify from a quick look. The 2nd one maybe has a triple fold, but I think that is the worst of it.
Let me know how you get on…and photos are ALWAYS welcome!
