POP UP Star Book Tutorial

Hi There
Hope you are all well this week.
Ive recently been asked if I would do a Tutorial on the POP UP Star Book I made last year. So here it is and there's lots of pictures. Hope you like it.
 Using a double sided patterened Designer paper of your choice cut out 5 squares 3'' x 3'' and two smaller ones 1.5'' x 1.5'' and Distress Edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
 Score and fold down the centre of all 5 of the larger squares.
Turn and repeat so all 5 squares should now look like the picture above.

Carefully score diagonally and fold, but only do this once.

Now fold all five squares where scored and it should look like this. Here we fold the diagonal line inwards.

With the open folded area to the outside adhere all 5 pieces together.


Before we adhere the outer book ends add a piece of ribbon and secure. Do this on both ends.
 Thread both ribbons through one bead. This helps hold the bead in place when the star book is open.

When open it should look like this. Ive embellished with  Mini Skating Tilda.

and this is what it looks like when closed. They make fantastic tags for your Chrismas presents and believe me they are so easy to make.
Thankyou so much for visiting me.
Bye for now
