FAMILY book folding templates


I may have mentioned that my most requested book folding templates are for the word FAMILY.  I’ve also said that I would be adding a set for easy download.  Here they are.  Don’t worry about the overlapping bits in some of the fonts.  This is what I usually send with my templates:

The words/images are s t r e t c h e d so they will look in proportion when folded.  

Don’t worry! Overlapping lines show on the screen but not when printed 🙂 

The lines DO NOT tell you how many pages you need for your template, they are to help with the counting. Be sure to go back to my blog post for info on how to calculate the page count. has links to two different posts for how to do this. Be careful to count the alternating folds correctly!

Why I won’t tell you how many pages you need can be found here

Here is the PDF for download.  The one inside the heart is one that had been requested.  As I had it I thought I might as well  include it.  I think it might work better as a cut & fold, but if you give it a go and it works, be sure to share a photo with me.

Hope you find it useful!

  1. I have late 1800/early 1900 school books of my grandfather’s. Not many places around me are interested in them as they are a bit on the tattered side where the covers are concerned. BUT I bet they would make cool folded books to give to family members. So now my mission is to look through your free “family” templates (thank you for making these available!!) and all your helpful hints to see how many books will fit this crazy idea I have. 🙂

  2. I’ve made two books so far with your free templates! I appreciated the alphabet so that I could create my own word as well as the various “Read” templates you have provided! My next experiment is with the word “Family.” I’m grateful I can dabble in book folding without feeling I need to invest in a computer program or time trying to create my own templates!

  3. Thank you so very much in your generosity of posting these FREE templates people to use – you have put a lot of time in to creating these. Both your instructions and templates look to be very well thought through and user friendly. Hoping to start my first project very soon.

  4. These just amaze me. Must give it a try…someday. lol
