Make a Turkish Map Fold

May 29, 2020

Learn how to make a Turkish map fold, a fun and unique book form using a single piece of paper!

NBSS middle school book arts instructors and Bookbinding graduates Erin Fletcher BB ’12 and Colin Urbina BB ’11 break down how to fold this intricate shape into a couple of easy-to-follow steps.

For supplies, you’ll just need a single sheet of paper (any type) that you’ve cut down to a square size and decorated in any way you like. Erin and Colin offered a few creative suggestions:

  • Mind map
  • Circle map
  • Topographic map
  • Road map
  • Family tree
  • Map of your house or neighborhood
  • A map from your favorite novel, movie, or video game
  • Map of your state or country
  • The Universe, or anything else you like!
