Mountain Dog Book Folding Pattern

Dog patterns are always popular, so I thought that I'd try something different. Rather than the small cute breeds, I've gone for a large, strong mountain dog.

This guy stands tall and proud. He requires 294 folds and 588 pages. The book I chose was the perfect size, so it allowed me to show off the lovely coloured inside cover, which really helps him stand out from the crowd.

Here is a great idea for a decoration for a boys bedroom. A toy train with smoke coming from the engine, folded into a book. This would look great made with an old copy of The Railway Children of some other train themed novel.
