My 2 daughters have both had an attempt at doing Folded Book Art whilst attending their Homneschooling Art Classes. I said I wanted to give it a go so I tried doing it this week. I didn't do any preparation work and rushed this as I didn't have much time but I am still pleased with how it turned out for a first attempt. It is meant to be like a 3D Heart. I think If I put in more preparation and more time then it would come out good enough to give as a unique gift insha'Allah.
I used an old hard back book bought at a charity/thrift shop.
In case you missed my daughter's attempts at book art here are some pics for you.
