Cut 5 pieces of card 10 x20 cm
Fold all the piece of card in half to make 10 x 10 cm folded squares.
Cut 5 pieces of card 11 x 5 cm, and fold in half. Put double sided sticky tape on the outside 4 edges of one outer side, so when the card is opened out it looks like this;
You are now going to join the 5 background cards together, the side without the double sided tape going against the side of the next card which does have double sided tape.
Do this until you have the 5 cards stacked on top of each other.
This is going to sit inside the background page like this.
Put one piece of double sided tape down along the back outside edge of both sides of the back as shown.
Open the book out, and carefully line up and attach the inside W shaped card with the outside edge of the background.
Turn the card round and line up the other side and attach. Repeat this with all 5 pages.
Close the book, and put double sided tape on the outer side that doesn’t have it yet. Adhere a ribbon to one of the outer sides for tying the book. Take the backing off the double sided tape, and attach the cover. Turn the book over, and attach the ribbon in the same way.
Here I have adapted the Star Book to make a Christmas tree, hence the Startree name!!!!
Open this pdf and use the template to cut the lines as shown, cutting on the folded edge. The yellow line is to remind you not to cut past the half way point, or your branches will stick out of the book when it’s closed.
One by one, pull the ‘branches’ forward, and while pulling them forward, squeeze the card shut to fold them in the forward position.
I find it easier to decorate the tree now before putting the book together.
Because the spine of this book is quite thick, it’s a nice finishing touch to cover it in glitter.
