Cyber Studio: Folded Book Critters

Create an art project with a MAM instructor from your home with Cyber Studio! We're making critters out of folded pages in a book, inspired by the bamboo stalks in Federico Uribe's exhibition, Animalia, at MAM.

You'll need:

  • A book (at least 100 pages)
  • glue
  • colored paper

Follow these steps:

  1. Find the halfway point of the book
  2. Turn the book horizontal. Start with the middle page of the book. Fold the left corner to the center. 
  3. Then fold the right corner to the center. It should create a point in the middle.
  4. then fold the middle to the center.
  5. Continue until you fold 25 pages in one direction.
  6. Turn the book around and fold 25 pages in the other direction.
  7. Once you have the “book body “ create your critter face. 
  8. Use colored paper to create eyes, ears, whiskers, a nose, and mouth. Make sure to leave flaps on the ears for the glue.
  9. Glue the parts of the critter face to your book, and set them on a book shelf to keep an eye on things!
