 This Paper Pockets Book was created by Greta Baack and will be taught by Diane Williams at the workshop on April 11. Diane explains the project as a "book with 10 pages made from #10 security envelopes (size 4.12" x 9.5") or any envelope this size can be used for this project. The envelopes must have their flaps which must be sealed. Envelopes will be provided at the workshop. Envelopes can be colored, painted, covered or stamped to decorate them.
   Sometimes you will get them in your bills as return envelopes. I recycle these for my book pages. If the envelope has a window you can use it as long as you can cut in 2.75" from the end of your sealed envelope.
   Decorative paper may be used to cover the chipboard book cover or you may decorate it with stamps. The pockets in our book are large enough to hold business cards, artist trading cards, school photos or whatever your creative mind thinks up to put in the pocket." 
Please RSVP to Diane (see sidebar in the newsletter for her contact information) by April 5.
