I am beginning to get requests for Christmas Book folds patterns so I thought this might be a good time to resurect these. Just a warning: Download the actual PDF, don’t use the .jpg display images you see on the screen!
These are likely to work as straight folds. I’ve added a couple more trees, all of these are pretty simple for beginners.
A split tree, so many alternating folds, but not hard hard.
A Present – this one might be a little more challenging with the alternating folds, but I think it will come up nice.
Rudolph is so darn cute. And one of my followers DID fold it – I think it turned out pretty great and adding a red pompom for the nose – or even adding a wired blub to make it really glow? Would be FAB!
Simple Swirl – likely best as Cut&fold
Ornate tree – pretty complex, this one. Not for beginners but if you do it I would love to see it! And this is best as a Cut&Fold.
Balls – I think the counting lines hide the fact there are at least two straight lines from bow to ball.
I repeat, I have not folded or cut&folded any of these. They should work in theory, but no way to be sure until you fold them.
Any requests that seem like they would be of universal appeal for the holidays, I’ll add them here. I am almost 100% sure at some point I created a dreidel, a menorah, and a few spellings of Hannuka in the past but at the moment I can’t find them. Must be squirreled away in a folder that I named something stupid that made sens at the time but not now. DOH!
As ever PLEASE share your folds if you do make one. I love seeing them and hearing the reaction of the people who get them as gifts.
Regular crafting will resume tomorrow. I am on a bit of an ornament kick at the moment so forgive me – usually I never even consider that major C holiday till weeks from now but I have been tempted by a few nifty things I want to share!
