Hedgehog bookfold - Tutorial 5

Bookfolded hedgehog

Equipment

Paperback book of at least 150 numbered pages
googly eyes
button
ribbon
flower/bow
glue
scissors


The first step is to remove the cover of your book, both front  and back



Next take the top right corner and fold it diagonally to the spine of the book as shown below



Make sure your fold is crisp, you can use a bone folder or just a finger


Next fold the rest of the page in towards the spine, again making sure it's crisp...it's a bit like making a paper aeroplane



Now repeat at least 74 more times, you will see your hedgehog start to take shape 


Once you've completed the folding check to see if it looks full enough, if not fold a few more pages.  If you have spare pages left they will need to be removed, I did this using a craft knife.

Now you are free to decorate yours in any style that suits you.




Why not have a try at making your own and sending me a picture via my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/where.the.craft.is
