Next weeks meeting is set to work on ‘A Book in a Box’.

Tips and Ideas

Need a box?  Think about using a tissue box, an old shoebox, or even an empty cereal box or cigar box. You could make your own box from a large book. All of these could have smaller compartments made to house related objects or small books?
Decorated paper is a great way to easily cover your box and add colour! However you may like to use the original covering of the box, it really depends on the concept you are working with.

Some examples found on line:

What to bring:
