Free Book folding Patterns

Recommended 2nd pattern for beginners

Home with heart as o

This pattern is a great second pattern to try as a beginner as it introduced something you’ll come across often in MMF patterns.
When the page wont fold to 90 degrees.
* Fold close to the spine
* Fold back the overlapping corner and crease the fold to mark it.
* Trim it off!

What to do with folds that don’t go to 90 degrees

If there are only a few overlapping corners then you may choose to leave them in the book. But if there are many, all at the same point of the page, they will put stress on the spine and create gaps in your finished book.

Haven’t tried a cut and fold before?
Take a look here at the free Cut and Fold Inspire Patter and video lesson

Any pattern, Any style.

Most cut and folds can be made in any of the cut and fold styles using the same measurements…

  • Inverted cut & fold – cut all marks then folds in the even tabs.
  • Embossed cut & fold – cut all marks then fold in the odd tabs.
  • Combination cut and fold – Do not cut first and last marks of each page, fold them to 90 degrees instead (like MMF). cut and fold the rest.

You can also do the 180 style on them too. If you’d like some tips on how, take a look at the 180 Blog
