Turkish Map Fold
Intermediate | 5 min 39 sec
An elegant way to fold paper, this technique has traditionally been used to fold maps. Jody deconstructs the steps to show how one piece of paper can be turned into a pop-up greeting card -- or you can combine many to create an artist’s book, decorative garland or even a crown!
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • cutting tool (optional if you tear the paper)
  • bone folder (or other folding tool)
  • straight edge ruler
  • pencil
  • Any square paper that can be folded
  • glue (if attaching to a card or each other)
Learn how to:
  • Fold properly
  • Use a bone folder
  • Create the Turkish Map fold

What you’ll get:
  • An easy-to-follow lesson on the Turkish map fold
  • A quick HD video lesson you can access online anytime, anywhere
  • Itemized supply list
  • Step-by-step instruction by artist Jody Alexander
  • The ability to leave comments, ask questions and interact with other students
