1: Take one sheet of regular printing paper and fold it into 16 equal squares.
2: Cut 3 squares in (alternating sides) as seen in second photo.
3: Fold the paper like an accordion back and forth... you'll end up with a tiny little book.
4: Glue stick the inside of the book to itself (the pages you wouldn't draw on; this helps the book keep it's shape).
5: Using heavy paper cut out a cover- then glue stick the book inside.
(If my instructions are difficult to decipher, I suggest looking for a youtube tutorial.)
It was a fun way to spend our Sunday night. Do you ever make your own books? Do your kids like to make their own books?
