Split Image Flip Book with Beth McIlraith

Last month we learned how to make Michael Jacobs' version of a Flip Card. At the September workshop Beth McIlraith will show her version of a "Split Image Flip Book" sewn with a simple Japanese stab binding. Come join in the fun for some gluing, cutting, sewing and laughing. Bring your collected images and the supplies listed below.

The image will transform...
as you flip the parts of the page!
What fun!
