Interlocking Structure

Workshop with Michele Kamprath


Two views of a sample by Michele
This is a Hedi Kyle structure that has a lot of versatility. You can add pockets, sew in pages, or just put pictures onto the pages. You will need to bring the following paper cut to size to the workshop:

Materials needed:
• Cover paper: 1 piece light cardstock or Mi-Teines 5" x 20-1/2" grain short
• Pages: 3 pieces of light cardstock or Mi Teines 11" x 5" grain short
• Pocket: (if desired) 3-1/2" x 3-3/4" grain short
Note: Color choice—your book can be one color or a combination of colors that contrast the cover paper and pages. Each “page” actually opens horizontally so that you can add content.
Tools to bring:
• X-ACTO or craft knife with sharp blade
• Cutting mat
• Glue stick
• Metal ruler
• Pencil
• Bone folder or something to make a sharp crease
• Needle and thread (linen thread or other)

If desired, bring up to six images that are approximately 4-1/2" x 3-1/4".
If you have text pages to sew in, the size of the page when opened is 6-3/4" x
4-3/4".


Please RSVP by August 6 (see newsletter).
I will provide template and instructions and do not want to make more than is necessary. Thanks.

Workshop with Bobbie Hayes

WEAVE and INTERLOCK

This month we will make a book structure from Woven and Interlocking Book Structures by Claire Van Vliet and Elizabeth Steiner (2002). This structure uses single pages (no signatures) using four paper strips to bind them together without the use of adhesives. Please cut your materials before the workshop.

Bobbie's fun woven interlocking book

Materials needed
:
• 4 pages 4" x 5" grain long: these can be as light as text weight or as heavy as card stock. These are your pages and will have slits cut into them and have paper strips woven through them.
• 2 covers each 5" x 8-3/4" grain short: Mi-Teintes is a nice weight for this or use any paper you have that is comparable.
• 4 weaving strips each 3/4" x 13-1/2" grain short: This paper should be a thin strong paper. Both sides of the strip will show on both covers. For example, if you use one sided scrapbook paper, the plain side will show. If you use Mi-Teintes, it is colored the same on both sides and will be OK.
• Note about materials: If you have the Mi-Teintes from the June Workshop, it would make a great cover or the weaving strips. If you are wondering, the weaving strips show up on each page and both covers.


Tools needed:
• X-Acto knife and Scissors
• Cutting board
• Bone folder
• Metal ruler
• Pencil and eraser
• Awl
• Things to decorate your pages
(rubber stamps, paint, inks,
pens, or any fun stuff you like
to use).
