Holiday Book Samples for SDBA (3 of 5).jpg

Since we’re coming up on the holidays, we’ll talk about the terrific uses for both Flag and Tunnel Books as holiday gifts and as display items. Each offers the opportunity for a lot of personalization with photographs, images, stories, memories, favorite poems and holiday songs. The Flag Book we’re making in the workshop will have the theme of Peace and will feature a world map as well as the word Peace in 30 different languages. Students will choose from many different cover paper options and can personalize their colophon with a variety of messages. The Tunnel Book will look like a package and can be themed with many different options. Imagine giving this lovely little package and the delight your recipient will have when they open it to reveal a three dimensional scene! I will also give students instructions with step-by-step photos so they can continue to make this style of book easily after the workshop. Since the class is in early December there will still be plenty of time to make holiday gifts!
