Star Book Tutorial

, Hello.
Here is a tutorial for the star book that I posted on here the other day. These instructions make a 4" square book, and a six point star.

Step 1: Cut your cardstock into six pieces at 4" x 8", six pieces at 4" x 6 1/2" and 2 pieces at 3 3/4" square.


Step 2: Fold all the pieces, except the 3 3/4" ones, in half.

Step 3: Decorate the smaller pieces and the the square pieces. If you are using embellishments keep them flat so it will close properly.

Step 4: Stick the edges of the smaller pieces to the edges of the larger pieces so they create this shape.
Step 5: Stick the backs of each piece together making sure to leave a back and front cover.

Step 6: Stick ribbon along the front and the back of the card. I have used sellotape, but you can use anything as it will be getting covered.

Step 7: Stick the square pieces on the front and back cover. The ribbon can now be used to tie the book open and closed.
