During the holiday season I love going to Barnes and Nobles and walking around to see what they have new. I’ve always loved the smell of a book store or library and while walking I around I found a end cap with made book folding books and books with do it yourself patterns. I was so surprised and excited to try some and purchased the snowflake book folding pattern. Believe it or not it reminded me of frozen when I saw it but I guess almost anything can due to how popular frozen is and its about winter.
I went I head and started on the snowflake.
The pattern was very easy to follow and as you can see its lined so its easy to follow.
I then just followed the pattern and I finished my book snowflake book folding pattern.
It was super easy and fast to do, like always I just do it while watching some Netflix.
Now I have my very own snowflake book folding and who knows maybe I will be able to make a pattern of it but that’s for another day. I do have a couple more of these book which I purchased from Barnes and Nobles which I will be finishing up and showing you guys soon.
Just in case you want to get your own Barnes and Nobles has them on clearance right now.
I went looking for the most popular post of 2014 and I found that book folding patterns where super popular. It seems like very one enjoyed the pattern and are looking to learn how to make new shapes. I hope to bring a lot new patterns and at least one weekly for you all. I also hope to interview and have guest posts from other book folding experts. I have a lot of things on the works for 2015.
Here are a few of the most popular book folding patterns.
I also found that my Darth Vader stencil on my chairs was something everyone found fun to look at and maybe even try yourself.

I hope to have a new chair makeover for you guys soon. Last year was all about white and clean but this year I am going complete opposite. I am over the white which everyone else is always doing and now I am going more black. Its the reason I call my blog Pandora’s Craft Box because you never know what is coming. I hope you all had a great New Year and I hope you are all ready to start new projects with me .
I though i would start book folding Wednesday and here is another book folding tutorial! Book folding can be as easy or as hard as you want to make it. I usually try to make the tutorial easy to follow and with out many instructions. You can always use the patterns I have and rework them and make something new. I always begin with marking the pages. I know you might think that if you do that then you would see the markings once you fold your pages. However, let me a sure you that you wont even notice the marked pages. I will suggest you use a pencil when marking your book.
I went I ahead and ripped the cover because it would be very hard to fold it. I then folded the first fold the first ten pages using the first line and the last line.
The second fold was the second line from the top and the bottom.
The third fold is the third line from the top and the bottom.
Now you have three different folds.
You continue the folds until you reach the end of the book. You can always do more than 10 pages if you want it to look fuller. I used a paperback book which had 531 pages. It usually takes me about an hour to finish this book folding pattern. I can’t do it in one sitting since it can be very mind numbing at times. Hope you enjoy it.
