Day 1

Constructing the cover

We will create a a front and back cover for our book.

It can be a picture of your loved one (vertical works best).

You can also bring magazine and text cutouts, or pieces of cloth.

Materials need to be thin and absorbent, non-shiny/matte paper works well. 

We can play around with different types of materials.

We will explore what will work best to fit your idea and memories into your book.

Day 2

Tearing Papers

We will tear pages to fit your book cover.  They will be folded into signatures.

We will add an inner cover to your book.  We might explore spaces for special messaging and/or pockets for your book.
