My final contribution of the year after starting the Book Of The Month last January. This folded book is inspired by the frosty weather we had last week, along with the cold and dank fog. I took a few photographs outside our cottage, close to home as the temperature was so low I could barely hold the camera.
The December book is done with a style of folding that makes an open square in the centre with two ‘wings’. This makes it very stable and there is a lot of potential to use the design in other ways. I recall seeing an article in an old Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine where the centre section is cut away to form a lantern of sorts. In the photograph below you can see what I mean as I have taken the picture from above.
Below I have drawn out on a piece of paper the folding and cutting diagram. Cut on the red line.
