An elegant way to fold paper, this technique has traditionally been used to fold maps. Jody deconstructs the steps to show how one piece of paper can be turned into a pop-up greeting card -- or you can combine many to create an artist’s book, decorative garland or even a crown!
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • cutting tool (optional if you tear the paper)
  • bone folder (or other folding tool)
  • straight edge ruler
  • pencil
  • Any square paper that can be folded
  • glue (if attaching to a card or each other)
Learn how to:
  • Fold properly
  • Use a bone folder
  • Create the Turkish Map fold

What you’ll get:
  • An easy-to-follow lesson on the Turkish map fold
  • A quick HD video lesson you can access online anytime, anywhere
  • Itemized supply list
  • Step-by-step instruction by artist Jody Alexander
  • The ability to leave comments, ask questions and interact with other students
