Here are the remaining eleven books we made:
1) 8 page star book with pop-ups:
2) 16 page horizontal T-cut book:
3) P-cut book:
The 16 page horizontal T-cut and P-cut books look similar, but they were cut differently.
4) Pocket book:
You can use this to make a mini picture album by inserting mailing tags mounted with photos in the pockets.
5) Book with ribbon and beads:
Again, I can see this being used as a photo album. It is pretty enough to present as a special gift to a special someone.
6) Two color accordion book:
7) Accordion book with pop-ups:
8) Accordion book with cut-out scene:
I can see this as a card with a city skyline cut out of it.
9) Theatre book:
Story text can be written on the two flaps, with an illustration drawn onto the framed center panel.
10) JAM (Japanese American Museum) fold book:
The inside pocket can house, say, a menu if you were to use this for a sit-down dinner party.
See the flexagon in action:
I love how it keeps you guessing as to how it is constructed :0)
I think my favorites of all the books we made in class are the pop-up mask and the accordion book with cut-out scene. I can see myself using these ideas in my cardmaking.
A big thank you to C.J. Grossman for teaching this class!
