Cute little hedgehog :) Made from an old book.
Last week, my grandmother showed me this. I love the simplicity and the fact that it looks so cute! I'll tell you how to do it.

When you're done, you can use it for sticking in things like postcards or photos.

  • How to make a piece of book art. Book Hedgehog - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start with a book you don't want any more (or buy it for a few cents in a charity shop). It cannot have more than 100 pages, or the hedgehog will be too 'round'. It makes it easier when it's a paperback.

    Start with folding the pages in half. Then fold back the corners, as you can see on the picture.

    Continue with all the pages in the book.

    Until it looks like this. The papers sticking out, is the cover of the book.

    Cut off the cover, the same size/shape as the folded pages.

    Stick on some eyes and a nose and he's ready! I used buttons on a paper-clip.

Thanks for this! We just used it to make a topper for our library's book tree. Two hedgehogs made out of books the same size and glued together! ;)

That sounds really cool! My aunt showed me one last week where they made a christmas tree out of two books or glossy magazines. The magazines made it really colourful. Have to try that as well!
