Step 1: The book

Choose a paperback book with enough pages for your origami project.

Step 2: Fold the first page

You start by folding the first page of your book. The easiest way: From the top right to the middle and then from the bottom right to the middle, resulting in a triangle.

Step 3: Fold all pages to the middle of the book

Now you're going to the same way with the next pages to the middle of the book.

Step 4: Fold the other way around from the middle

When you arrive at the centre of your book, you fold the rest of the pages in the other direction.

Step 5: The result

And that's the way it looks when you're done. You can lay your Origami book at will or put it down and decorate as you wish.

Step 6: Decoration Inspiration

Here is a decoration idea for inspiration. A really great new use for an old book, right?
