Well I was playing around with no particular plan in mind and ended up making this. A multiway opening triangle book.

.

To start, cut some 12 x 12 white card sheets in half diagonally. (You can use any square size though.)


Fold each piece in half.


Fold as seen.


Fold the next piece the same and slide in place onto the first. Glue the two pieces together.


Repeat until all pieces are used and set to one side and leave to dry (Preferably pressed down to keep flat.
Cut two pieces of card slightly larger than the pages for the covers out of thick card.


Cut two smaller pieces and other decorative elements for the covers.
Cut 12 pieces of ribbon long enough to be tied and staple them to the smaller triangles.
Add strips of double sided tape and glue.


Adhere to the covers.


Adhere the pages to the covers using tape and glue on the first and last page. Leave to dry. So, this is one way to open the book.


Or you can flip it round and open it this way.


Or this way


Or this way too.


As you can see, there are a number of different ways to open it, and I've not shown them all to you! It was fun to make though.
I've coloured the whole thing with Dylusions inks and left to dry.


I've then added stamped details to the covers and wrapped the edges with decorative tape too before edging with some Treasure Gold.


I have punched holes in all 3 corners with a crop o dile. How you tie the ribbons determines which edge of the book stays closed and the book rings can be used as well to hold the  covers together. If you do not tie any ribbons or use rings you can open the whole book out This one stretches to about 1,2m LOL

A Scrap Layout Using Triangular Photographs

Swipe the four Distress stains onto a craft sheet. Using a firm bristle brush and your finger flick each of the colours onto your white 12x12 card

Using a larger brush now flick bigger spots of the stains onto the card

Dry off the inks then using the stencil apply the gold paste randomly onto the card on the left hand side

Using a triangle shape, template or a die cut out your photographs, mount them onto the turquoise card and cut them out again then add them to the right hand side

Swipe some gold paste across the card and sprinkle the shabby white embossing powder, the mica flakes and glass glitter over it. Heat emboss. Don't worry if the powder travels a little, it adds to the effect

Make three circles with the glossy accents and coil some string onto each of them. Allow to dry then dab over them with some of the stains. Add a blob of glossy accents to the centres.

Randomly stamp the triangle stamp on the layout using bundled sage distress ink.

Ink around the layout with bundles sage and peacock feathers distress inks using a blending tool
