Make A Book With Just One Sheet Of Paper!
All you need to start is a single piece of paper and a pair of scissors
First, fold the paper in half like a greeting card to crease it, then unfold it

Now fold it in half the long, skinny way. Crease it and unfold it again.
2
Self check: your paper should have 4 sections separated by creases.
Fold each side in to meet the center crease. If you did it right, your paper will have 8 sections.

Fold it in half like a greeting card and turn the paper so the folded edge is closest to you.

Self check: the paper should be folded like a greeting card with the folded edge closest to you.
Pro tip: draw a dotted line along the crease between the fold and where the creases intersect.
Cut along the crease following the dots. Unfold your paper-- it should have a slit in the center.
5
Fold the paper so there are 2 flaps sticking straight up. Fold one to the left, one to the right.
6
Fold your paper in half as shown.

Fold in half along the crease one last time and voila! You made a book!
