Make a great kite book from one sheet of paper. We love it as a simple diamond exercise book. You might trim out 2 pages & spell out "K" "I" "T" "E" on the 4 pages. Be patient on steps 3 & 4. By your second book, it will be easier to divide the paper into three parts. Try more books!
1. Hold 8 1/2 x 11" paper vertically.
2. Fold paper in half (top to bottom).
|3. Begin to fold paper in even thirds, creating diagonal edges.|
