Mini-folded Books 

Instructor: Shelly Korte
Another fun project inspired by the News for the People exhibition, booking making! Start with some paint and add color and texture to a piece of paper. Then you'll use scissors to cut a pattern and an easy folding technique to create pages. Fill your pages with images and text to finish off your sweet little book.
