Book Folding 3-D Art

Book Folding 3-D Art
by Wendy Switzer
KUTV Channel 2 - February 8, 2012
Level of Difficulty: Intermediate to Advanced
Time to complete: 2-6 hours

This project was lots of fun to create, but it is time consuming.  Do not think that it is something that you can create in 30 minutes!  Plan on spending at least 4-5 HOURS on these projects.  Some can be completed in as little as 90 minutes, but the more complex it is...the more time AND patience it will take!  :)

Supplies Needed:

  • Old Book...or one from the local thrift or dollar stores
  • bone folder
  • adhesive

                                         Standing up........................................or laying down
both options give you a unique look
Breast Cancer ribbon in the center 
(lighting was not good and this was the first attempt at the ribbon...sorry)

You can even create letters, names, etc.

The instructions for these are extremely complex and difficult to get from my head to the paper.  Please be patient and I will have them up as soon as I can.  

Thank you for your continued patience as we try to figure out what is wrong with our pictures and instructions not showing up.  

We have done something different with today's post that will (or SHOULD) automatically post at 1:00pm.  If all goes well, and it DOES post at 1pm, we will know what to do to get the last 3 segments fixed and posted as soon as possible.  :)

Thanks again...
Happy Crafting!

Cricut Wednesday

NEW Cricut Cartridges!!!

Cricut has a few fun new cartridges and so I thought I would combined two of my favorites in today's craft 



  • Cricut Machine, cutting mat, etc.
  • Cricut Cartridges: "Ribbons & Rosettes" and "Damask Decor"
  • Adhesive 
  • Ruler
  • Blue and white cardstock

  1. Start by cutting pieces from your "Ribbons & Rosettes" cartridge:
    1.  ONE 7 1/2" from white cardstock
    2. SIX 2 1/2" from blue cardstock
    3. ONE 4" Rhinestone/Medallion Shadow/Shift from white cardstock
    4. ONE 3 1/2"  Rhinestone/Medallion Shadow/Shift from blue cardstock
    5. ONE 3"  Rhinestone/Medallion Shadow/Shift from white carstock

  1. Next cut your piece from the "Damask Decor" cartridge:
    1. ONE 3" using blue cardstock

  1. Fold your six pieces along the cutting lines making an accordion "back and forth" fold.
  2. Adhere the ends of each piece and then secure the first piece to the last making a circle of folded papers which is now your medallion 
  3. Adhere your medallion to your largest white piece
  4. Layer the remaining white and blue circle pieces onto each other according to size.
  5. Secure your blue piece to the top and you are finished.

Many of the Cricut Cartridges can easily compliment each other.  Give it a try...see what great things you can create using 2-4 cartridges.  I would love to see what you come up with! :O)

Happy Crafting!
