Origami Basics – Book Fold


The next fold is the Book Fold. The book fold is actually the same as the valley fold. But here we fold the paper in half so that it resembles a book. Here’s  a quick tutorial:

Start with a square piece of paper which is coloured on one side and white on the other. The white side will be on the top. The size of my square is 6 inches.
Take one of the horizontal edges and fold to the other horizontal edge. Align the 2 edges correctly and crease well.

The paper is now divided into 2 equal halves.

The paper looks like a book that is closed. Hence the name Book Fold. The fold is complete :)
