If you saw our clip on CTV News At Noon today and want to recreate the fun book decor piece we showed, here is the step by step! It’s a super easy and affordable way to add personality to your space, plus it’s a great repurpose for a dusty old book. Try it yourself – we’ d love to see pics of your creations!
Step 1: find a hard cover book; choose a cool vintage one to add some style!
Step 2: open the book leaving about 1″ of pages before you make the first fold.
Step 3: make one large off-centered fold, and then a smaller fold to complete the off centered triangle.
*repeat this step another 4x to have thickness in the design
Step 4: make your folds in the reverse direction to make the off-centered triangle lean to the other side.
*repeat 4x to add depth and match the thickness of step 3
Step 5: fold you paper to make a triangle in the middle of the page.
*repeat 4x to match the other 2 sections
Step 6: continue repeating step 3-5 until you have about an inch of paper left on the backside of the book, to balance the book open.
Step 7: viola! Now you have a super fab book ornament!
