Well, actually we went already and it was fab...and armed with a sheet of paper this is what I created!

I'm in practice for my Little Visitor Swap so comments appreciated!

It's a sheet of A4 paper folded to make a book, pretty simple but I can post a tute if anyone wants? Makes a handy book to keep in your pocket and can be made from just about any paper of any size!

The front


1st double page - elephants


2nd double page - birdies


3rd double page - giraffes & a page of me feeling sorry for the caged ones Sad


Back - the bat cave (my favourite place)


The whole darn thing in miniture

Phew, thanks guys!!

I've posted a tute of how to make the book separetely otherwise there'd be way too many pics here! (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51923.0)

So when you've folded the book...or if you just want to try this idea out anywhere...I've tried to cobble together some kind of help as to how I did the rest - though these are my first tutes so I hope they're okay?!

Here goes...





oops should say black INK pen








Phew! Makes me wish I'd taken pics of the original while I was making it!

Hop this is okay...it's my first proper tute...

that sort of little folded book is one of my absolute favorites!  i used to make them with my students when i was teaching...they go together so easily and really feel like a book and not just folded paper.
and your art is great, too, of course!
