Book Hedgehog (and a contest!)

Remember when I wrote about those adorable book hedgehogs I’d seen?  Well I finally got around to making one.

It’s actually a very simple process.  Just two folds.  You fold your book page in half, then fold one corner in.

He doesn’t have a name yet, but I have narrowed it down to a few options:

  • Eugene
  • Spike
  • Horace
  • Ziggy
  • Quilliam
  • Wells

I can’t decide though.  Let me know what you think and there may well be a prize in it for one of you 🙂
