Triangle Fold Book

Double sided printed paper works very well for this project. Measure and cut 4 – four inch squares. Each square shall be numbered 1-4 in your mind. You can make the book any size you wish as long as you are working with a square shape.The directions remain the same. What you need: piece of copy paper (or the like), scissors, pencil, ruler, recycle cereal box, 24 inches of ribbon, glue stick, double stick tape Fold each piece of paper as in Step 1: Diagonally from the lower right corner to the upper left corner, open. Lay the open square flat. Now fold the horizontal middle (dotted line in Step 1), the bottom edge to the top edge.

This should now lay with the horizontal fold popping up a bit on the left and right as in Step 1 picture. Push the creases to the center to create a folded triangle shape. Junk Journal. Junk Journal tutorial/instructionsJunque Journal how to Super simple.

Junk Journal

Recycle cereal/product boxes or chipboard from paper pads, or use poster board cut to desired size if you want to go fresh and new. Cut (scissors or paper cutter) to desired size. Punch holes (two or three depending on your size). Bind with binding rings (found at office supplie shops) This book is easy to add (or remove) additional pages too and reorder the pages also. Please note that the book base may not be acid free and could effect the future of your book. Punch holes first so that your page art can be placed around the holes rather than over them. To cover the sides of the board: Paint over with Gesso, or white paint or Cover with scrapbooking patterned papers or any other type of paper (punch holes first, then repunch after the paper is glued down) Collage over the page.

Lingo Acronyms. Swap Lingo and Acronyms 1/1 – one for one, an even trade with someone else 6/5 – or any large number over the large number minus one — you send in six identical cards, you get 5 back, the hostess keeps the extra one.

Lingo Acronyms

There are some hostesses that do participate in their own swaps and others who just run a swap, trades out all the players but keeps the extra card. You may want to ask if the hostess is participating OR the hostess can say, she is participating in the swap also. Angel (swap angel) – someone who steps into an ongoing swap to fill the spot of another player who has dropped out.

Bonus – something the hostess will send you with the swap going back to you. Card Fronts – only make a card front, a quarter sheet of cs, like a postcard. Cash – some hostesses ask for cash to buy stamps or return envelopes. Closed swap – usually when there are enough players, the swap will be closed to all new players. This to That (Glue Advice) Techniques. If you have never painted before, have a dabble first to get used to the paints and the brushes.


Discover the marks you can make with different brushes, and learn how to lay a flat wash of colour. Practise mixing colours, and experiment with various textures. Then, when you have gained a little confidence in these basic techniques, start by painting simple things - perhaps a leaf, a flower or a single tree. Watercolour basics 'Wet' and 'dry' Watercolour effects vary enormously depending on whether you allow the paint dry between stages or not. For detailed paintings, with sharp edges and crisp shapes, then you must work 'dry'. Dark over light Because watercolour is transparent it is not possible to cover up a darker colour by painting a lighter colour on top. Working without white.
