Chloe and I made little zines over the weekend. With one 8-1/2 x 11 sheet you can make a cute little book - all without staples. This will give you a front and back cover and 6 interior pages.
Step 1: Holding the paper with the long edge to the top, fold the page like a book so the two short ends meet.
Step 2: Fold the book from top to bottom.
Step 3: Fold the left side to meet the right side.
Step 4: Unfold the last two fold. It will look like it did at the end of Step 2 with the first fold still folded.
Step 5: Cut the horizontal fold you just unfolded halfway across the page (from the fold of your paper to the vertical crease- between the pages numbered 3 and 8).
Step 6: Unfold the paper completely.
Step 7: Draw the story. (see numbered panels for orientation of drawings.)
Step 8: Fold the paper in half this time so that the long end meets the other long end.
Step 9: Push the two ends in to make a diamond shape from the cut-out area. Push the diamond closed, and press the pages making the front and back covers the exterior of the book.
And you're done!
