C202 - Out of the Box, Into a Book

Doris Arndt
9:00 - 4:30
Wednesday - May 29

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

Start with a humble cracker box, mix in some magic and you have a book that is truly outside of the box. The cover is collaged with ephemera and the inside cover is completed with kraft paper that you have embellished. The signatures are separated by covers that are enhanced with coffee spray or paint. The no sew binding makes it a dream to bind and the ribbons add a colorful element as well as being crucial to the binding.
The $7.00 kit fee covers:
providing boxes, collage materials, ribbon, paper, miniature clothespins, imagery, stencils, envelopes, double stick tape, tacky glue and straws.

Students should bring:
Pencil, ruler, scissors, small bottle matte medium


Most of the required supplies for your classes can be pre-ordered from Collage. They will be ready and waiting for you to pick up when you arrive at the retreat. For further info and to place your order, contact:
