As promised, I’m including here a layout of The Moles so that you can print it out on your home printer and make your own mini book out of one sheet of paper to carry around in your purse, backpack, or satchel. Click on this image to download a pdf of the layout:
Check out the individual panels in my previous post, The Moles – All Done!
And here are the instructions for making your own The Moles 8-panel book from an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper:
Step 1: Print on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper
I printed on my home inkjet printer, using some semi-nice matte paper. Don’t use anything too heavyweight, otherwise the book won’t fold well. The pdf is 8.5 x 11, so print at 100%. Your finished mini book will be 3.25″ x 2.5″.
Step 2: Trim
(I’m using a blade, but you can use scissors for all the cutting too)
Step 3: Fold in half lengthwise
Step 4: Fold in half the other way
Step 5: Fold in top and bottom to the middle fold line
Step 6: Cut a line in the middle of the paper, using the fold lines as guides
This is what you should get:
Step 7: Fold stuff, making a kind of diamond shape
Step 8: Voila!
Use this technique for making your own mini-books, too. It’s eight panels worth of fun, which is just the right amount of fun for me.
