Book Arts Tuesday-Valentine Book to Make and Share
Here's a simple unfolding book to make for a valentine. I usually call the form a Who Am I? Book but this time instead of unfolding to reveal an identity, the final page completes the message. For me, Valentine's Day is about more than romance. Here's a wish for all my friends, known and unknown.
I used a small piece of grocery bag for the pages, a Trader Ming's box for the cover, and a ribbon and a button for the tie. Paper from the collage box decorated the cover and the writing was done with red marker.
You can print this PDF for directions to make the book. And here's PDF in Spanish. Thanks as always to Lourdes V. Pichardo and Laura Mason Zeisler, M.Ed for the translation.
