What you'll do

In this online experience, you'll learn how easy it is to make a book with things you have around the house. Once you make one, you'll want to make loads more! To get started, we’ll introduce ourselves and check to make sure you have everything you need to make your pop out book. Then I'll show you how to create each component of your book. First, you'll make pages by tracing around a jar lid (or by using a compass, if you have one) and then cutting them out with scissors. I'll teach you how to fold each page so it opens like a flower. Then you'll learn how to cut the front and back covers of your book. Your covers can be made from cereal box cardboard, the back of a pad of paper, or mat board (if you have it). I'll demonstrate how to cover the covers with paper so it looks creative and "polished.” For the final step, I will show you how to glue the pages together and install the covers. Voila! A fantastic and unusually shaped little book!
