They're Books! They're Gifts! They're Ornaments!
​Star, tassel, and brad book structures can serve all three purposes.  Depending on the papers you choose, they're great for any occasion or season. Copies of vintage images will be available for participants to use in the making of their books.

Collage Books Using Your Own Photos!
​Using your favorite landscape or still life shots, we will start each week with a different idea for a collage or layout and then use copies to make a variety of books including a simple sewn section/self mailer; meander style books; and concertina with wrap. Your original and unique collages may be good enough to be framed!
