Make a Petal Fold Book

July 8, 2020

Learn how to make a petal fold book or a petal book with NBSS middle school and Continuing Education instructors Colin Urbina BB ’11 and Erin Fletcher BB ’12.

This fun shape has “petals” which are folded and glued together, and unfolds looking like a flower or an accordion. Give yours as many or as few petals as you like!

You’ll only need a few supplies to make this beautiful book:

  • 5 square sheets of paper (you can use origami paper or any paper cut to square)
  • Glue stick
  • Scrap paper

Learn to make another folded book structure with Colin and Erin – the Turkish Map fold.
