Project Description

For your class project I would like you to have a go at creating your very own fold out pocket book. I would suggest trying to use materials you've already got at home and perhaps recycle paper that might otherwise have been thrown out. 

Remember that the paper square that you'll be using to fold the the book page should measure at least 20-21 cm (wider is fine) otherwise the folded page might be too small and it will be tricky to add pockets that are big enough for your ephemera.

It might also be a good idea to just use a blank piece of paper at first for you to practice the folding technique.
