Book Ornaments Workshop & Samples

Book Ornaments
Sun. Dec. 14, 11 am - 4 pm

Miniature books are one of my favourite things to make! Participants will create several small books that are perfect for hanging on a tree, giving as a gift, or using as a special card or album. Projects will be based on simple book structures such as the concertina, stab binding and origami fold star. Special attention will be paid to embellishing techniques for the pages and covers and spines. A variety of washi, chiyogami and other beautiful papers will be used on the covers, as well as findings, glass beads, ribbons, closures, etc.
Cost $50.00 + GST
Supply fee of $10.00 is due in cash on the day of the workshop.

These are some samples of books we'll be making at the Book Ornaments Workshop on Dec. 14th. I love tiny books! We hang or nestle them on our tree at Christmas. They're great gifts and you can put little drawing, pictures or sayings on the pages.

It's that time of year!

Chocolate Type! Yum!

I've seen this in several places on the web. The chocolates are made by a company in Germany.
Even though the letters are facing the correct way for reading I still think it's great. Hey, it's chocolate and letters together! Two of my favourite things! Now if I could get my chocolatier friend  here in Toronto to make these, wrong facing even, then I would be in heaven and full of chocolate!
