My Story

Hi, I am Wouter and I'm the founder of

Folded book art started as a gift for my girlfriend (soon to be wife). I was looking for a meaningful gift for her upcoming birthday. I remembered seeing a piece of folded book art in a boutique in San Francisco and I immediately knew this is THE GIFT. I searched the internet on how to make these, but I could not find any instructions. That's when I decided I was going to figure out on my own how to create it. After fooling around with a few methods I finaly figured out how to transfer letters from my computer screen to the pages of a book.

The book itself blew people away, everyone who say it was intrugued and awed by the details and craftmanship that went into it. I folded the word DREAM into the pages of a book, because that was her favorite word. After receiving so much praise about my first book, I decided to create more and share them on the internet. I wanted more people to be able to create their own pieces of folded book art and amaze other people.

So I created a clear step-by-step manual that explains the entire process, from marking to folding. I also created a simple heart pattern for beginners to start with. I'm absolutely positive you're able to create your own piece of handmade love for yourself and blow the recipient of this amazing gift away. After all, there's nothing better than a handmade gift right? A handmade gift that's looks so complicated to create, but really secretly isn't is even better right?

In this picture you see me creating one of my many creations. I'm always working on creating new designs to share with my community of avid bookfolders. We are also welcoming new members to the club every day, so if you've never done it before, simply give my simple heart pattern a try and experience how easy it is for yourself! The price for this pattern is not even $2 USD, so what can go wrong. I promise you, you can do this! It's not as complicated as it looks.
