  • Step 1Fold your piece of A4 paper into 8 sections as shown. Do this by folding your paper in half, in half again, and in half again. Unfold.
  • Step 2Fold your piece of paper width wise to make a ‘short and fat’ rectangle. Cut half way along the middle fold from the direction of the crease.
  • Step 3You should now have a cut in the middle of 8 sections, as shown.
  • Step 4Push the folds together, using your newly cut sections to create pages in your mini book. Look to the picture for guidance.
  • Step 5Now that your 8 page book is assembled, you can draw in your design with pencil.
  • Step 6Add colour to your design using watercolour paint. Allow to dry before allowing pages to touch, as the paint will smudge.
  • Step 7Now that your comic book is coloured and dried, use double sided tape to secure the loose pages together.
  • Step 8Finally, use a black fineliner to add detail to your design.
