Title: Tiny Treasures: Mini Book Workshop
Date: Thursday, April 24, 2014
Where: The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures
Instructor: Alice Vinson
Skill Level: Beginner
Class Fee: $25/$20 for Museum Members
Registration Deadline: April 17, 2014
Class Description: This fun workshop will guide you through the process of creating your own mini book with slipcase. This however, is not your typical mini book. Just take it out of its slipcase and open it up to reveal a two-pocket hardcover. In one of the pockets fits a tiny pamphlet stitched book and the other houses a small treasure (provided by student). It's a great format to showcase those small, yet precious moments. Finished size is approximately 3" x 2.5" x .625".
