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.
Very easy. You just repeat those two steps over and over again.
And over and over and over. Now, common sense should have told me that this would be quite a time consuming process. However I don’t actually have much common sense. It took me about an hour to make my hedgehog.
The number of pages you need varies depending on the thickness of the pages. I found that when I got to this point…
…I couldn’t really fit any more pages in, and my hedgehog seemed nicely full. So I tore off the rest of the book and moved on to the next step. The decorating. I added a button for his nose, and some nice big googly eyes, as well as little shapes of spare book page for ears. And here he is:
Here he is at work, too…
He doesn’t have a name yet, but I have narrowed it down to a few options:
I can’t decide though. Let me know what you think and there may well be a prize in it for one of you 🙂
