Upcycled BookFolding

I love trying new art projects! After seeing some fantastic book folding online, I decided to give it a shot. I did a lot of research hoping to design my own pattern, but for a beginner like me, it's really best to just get a good pattern and start there. There are lots of great places to find patterns, some you pay for and some you don't. Since this was my first attempt, free and not too challenging was precisely what I was looking for! Some patterns are better than others, and for me, I found the patterns from All in the Folds to be the easiest to start with. They also have a fantastic Facebook Group that I highly recommend joining as it is a great place to get advice, try new patterns and get inspiration! For this project, I used the beginner heart pattern.
