12 x 12 papers make books.

Our team challenge this week was to use a sheet of 12 x 12 paper.

I remember years ago making little books with children in school where we used one piece of paper folded it a few times them made 3 cuts and folded it up. The second attempt  worked!

You role the paper in half then half again, open out turn 90 then fold again in the same way.
When opened out you cut across to the final vertical fold line from left to right along the horizontal fold on the next horizontal fold down you cut from  right to left  and on the third fold line down you cut from left to right.
Taking one corner square you concertina the pieces together.
This sounds rubbish I will post pictures of the stages tomorrow.

I used the Christmas papers 'All is Calm', Pear Pizzazz ink and card. The stamps are from the Project Life section of the main catalogue, page 26 and 27.

Here is the little book I made, I will use it for ideas this month.
