Book Repurposing - Treasure Box

Repurpose an old book into a secret treasure box.   This will be a two-session class, the two Thursdays in November.

In the first class, November 8th at 6-7:30 pm, we will prepare the book for carving out the middle. It will take only about thirty minutes, so you can come anytime between 6 and 7:30, as long as you allow 30 minutes.

In the second class, November 15th at 6-9:00pm, allow a couple of hours to carve out the middle and decorate your book. Leave the book plain, if you want to be able to slide it into a bookshelf and be a true 'secret' treasure box. Or decorate with paint, papers or other found items.

Because we will be handling sharp blades, the class is limited to persons 12 and over.  Kids 12-15 must be supervised by an adult.

Call or stop by the library to sign up.  The library will provide one book per person, glue and Modge Podge, exacto knives and blades to carve as well as a few decorating items, such as craft papers.  If you want to add more to your project, you will need provide your own found items.
