This post was inspired by an inquiry, and made me think about how our houses or homes can be a trap or haven, worry or delight, or all of the above and more. It is a little house-shaped card, learned from an elementary school teacher and included in both instructional books, Creating Handmade Books (p. 29) and Making Handmade Books (p. 49). All you need is a piece of paper.
In this example, I have printed a photo of my studio: one half of an 8.5 x 11 piece of card stock features the outside; the other half, upside down, shows the inside. If you decide to print your paper first, make sure that both of the heads or tops of the images are in the center, feet at the edges. For this model I used paper that was 65 lb / or 176g/m2 (176 grams per square meter). These are fresh instructions.
Materials: one piece of rectangular paper
Tools: bone folder (optional)
