Handmade - Heartmade

Done with my hands, from the bottom of my heart


What do you mean by "marks" ?

To understand the technic, I advise you to start with the geometrical ones.
The notice is HERE.

How do I adapt the pattern to my book ?

Measure your book sheets height, substract 15, then divide by 2.
Add the result to all the marks.

Count your book number of sheets, substract 201, then divide by 2.
The result tells you on which sheet you start folding.

    Un immense merci pour le partage de patron.
    J’ai découvert les pliages sur livre et je suis devenue accro.

    Thank you so much for the free book folding patterns, you are very generous and kind as most people say that the patterns are free but then you are directed to a page for payment. I will be telling several book folding friends about your wonderful blog x

      On this website there are 20 really free patterns.
      On my shop you can find many more patterns (some are for a very very short price!) and there you can order custom ones… Xmas is coming soon!

    I have seen your skull design. I am a novice and ask: on two A4 sheets, you have 2 columns. Is the first sheet for the right side of the center page, or do I start at the beginning of the book. (the skull is just an example).
    Thank you and many thanks for sharing of your patterns.

      I’m sorry but I don’t understand your question (due to my bad English…).
      – if you are trying to fold using a pattern, take a look at the instructions,
      – if you are trying to make your own pattern, take a look at the tuto (11th pic),
      – if it’s something else, give me more informations to help you… ;-)

    j’ai réalisé le bateau pour montrer à mes collégiens comment il était possible de transformer un livre et ils ont visité votre site … depuis ils ont réalisé le géométrique 1 et 2.
    Les plus attentifs ont réussi la chouette et le bateau. Certains sont demandeurs de prénoms, serait-il possible d’avoir le patron des lettres et je pourrais ainsi leur donner à chacun leur prénom ?
    Merci d’avance en tout cas pour le généreux partage.


      01 Mar 2014

      Je suis ravie de transmettre une technique manuelle à des collégiens… et qu’ils y prennent goût ! :-)
      Comme je le précise en bas de mon tuto, je ne communique pas de modèle à la demande. Sur la base de ma technique, les patrons des lettres sont cependant disponibles à la vente sur le site d’Aline.

    Thanks for sharing.
    This will be my second book-folding project. I find them very satisfying to do and beautiful to give as gifts.
    Your website is so interesting too with so many things to try. Thanks again!
