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!

Kit is a great fun teacher, very experienced and organized . I highly recommend doing her courses. I have done three and have another three planned.

Kit's classes are so engaging and fun! She limits the size so she can give personal attention to all attendees. I really appreciate that. As soon as I've finished a class I have the tools to do the activity and move forward in my own way.

This was a fun and fairly straightforward class on making the pop up book. Kit knows her craft and provides good teaching skills. I was quite happy with the outcome of my efforts and look forward to putting it to use!

Kit was great! The class was well-organized and she was very clear and precise in her instructions. She also allowed for different levels of skill and made sure not to leave anyone behind. She did an excellent job keeping the task at hand fun and under an hour.

Kit knew her subject. She presented it in such a way that everyone was successful. During her demonstration she discussed ways to expand upon the project at hand.
