Book Folding

Today I decided to have a go at book folding. This involves folding pages of a book to create a picture or a word. I decided to do the letter M on an old book. This was my first go but I guarantee that the others will be better.

This was a fun project and I will leave some templates down below.

P.S. I will sell some of these as finished and folded books. If you want one and live in the UK, send me your email in the comments below, your favourite template and I’ll contact you about it. It may take some time.

Party Skates

I had my party and it was brilliant! I decorated my own cake and look:

It was a skate party and we had loads of fun racing each other around the rink. I gave 10 mini skates and 1 big one away by lottery and my friends loved them. You can have a go at making one yourself. If you do, leave a picture in the comments below.
