Mini Origami Books

origami-mini-book-paperkawaii-02

Ok, so I went a bit nuts making these books.. there are actually more, that I gave away!

These aren’t true origami books, modular origami for the pages, but the covers are cut and optional glue.

I saw some books on Tweety Atelier which is in Korean. I can’t seem to link to a post directly, sorry, its in origami, on the 3rd page maybe.

The yellow one on the top of the pile is the one from that tutorial, the rest are modifications with different sized paper, and slightly different method with the cover.

I might do a tutorial on this, but I don’t think I’m that great at tutorials, the one I made on the baby shoes, seems no one like it HAHA

I would love to make a book case for them,..

    hey! i really want to learn how to make these, but there are instructions on the actual tutorial pictures that are in korean… the pages are pretty self explanatory by the pix, but the spine is a tricky one… are you planning on making a tutorial in english anytime soon?

    i just wanted to add that i totally agree with you on your views about public domain and diagrams. 😉 i love your site and think it’s absolutely adorable and has some really cute origami designs i definitely am going to try out.

    thanks!

    1. Yes I was planning on a tutorial if there was enough interest, and I have altered the way that the books are made, obviously the author of the website I mention is not the first person to make a paper book and I bet it is taken from else where anyway. One day I hope to start making videos too…!

      So thanks, I’ll put it on my to do list, I’m going to try making a tutorial for the 3d valentines day pop up card one first, unfortunately I found that on the same website as these books! 😉

    I am very sorry for Japan 🙁 I have some friends caught up in it all over there.. Nothing to do but pick up the pieces 🙁

    But I LOVE LOVE LOVE these little books!! Thank you SO much for sharing this with us… I was searching for some miniature origami books, and these couldn’t have been more perfect! I’m nearly finished making my first one now, and I’ll be making many more! They’re just too adorable. Thanks so much 😀

    1. Thanks, please feel free to upload a few photos if you like, I’d love to see someone else’s outcome!, there’s a form just under the post, 🙂

        Just uploaded a photo of three books I’ve made! One I followed the tutorial, the other two I left out the little latch, though, I’m thinking maybe I should attach it to the following books because I’m having troubles keeping the books closed and flat lol. Sat heavy books on them over night, but they still spring out. :S

        Thanks again for sharing the tutorial… absolutely LOVE these!

        1. These are great! thanks! I’ve just added them to the gallery, if you make the spine of the book a little wider, that helps with the springy thing, and a few of mine were like that like the red one, but they are flat now!!!
          Thanks again
