Triangle Books with Pop-ups Workshop

This is a fun and simple book. The secret is in how you choose to decorate it and what text or background you add. Those of you who have made circle books in the past will recognize this structure.
You will need to bring the following materials:

• 4 pieces of 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" cardstock. If you would like, print text or
a background photo on the card stock.
• 2-4 pieces of decorative papers. Coordinate colors to match
your cardstock.
• Old stamps, stickers or printed goodies that are 2" x2" or less
• Double-sided tape or PVA, brush and wastepaper
• Bone folder
• X-Acto knife (or craft knife of your choice)
• Cutting mat
• Pencil, eraser
• Metal ruler
