Let’s start:

 

  1. Cover your book with it the white piece of paper, just the way you would bind a book for school.
    (make sure the edges are all folded nicely and tucked in perfectly)

 

 

  1. Open the book up in the middle and start folding the right and the left corne into the middle until you get a perfect triangle. The tip will probably kind of fold double because the paper in a book is not a perfect square, but that ok.Than take the next page and fold that page horizontal in the middle, so you basicly fold the page in half.

 

  1. Repeat these two fold after each other until all pages are fold. (I usually fold the one half of the book completely and then start with the second half.

 

  1. After folding all Pages you have to options to finish the book. You actually can rip of the cover (than of course you don’t need step 1) or you glue a colored or patterns piece of paper into the inside of the cover. I went with black. You can use this area for some notes or a lovely quote etc.

 

  1. Done, now you simply decorate and organize your business cards, invites or notes in this lovely card stand.
Voilà, easy DIY to be creative and personaliz your workspace!

I hope you enjoyed this little DIY
