Join Edge Gerring and Lynne Gurnee for some summer play time collaging decorative paper napkins and teabags onto notecards, postcards, bookmarks, and a mini maze book. This sort of surface design can also be used effectively for decorating book covers and pages.

Materials to bring:

  • Matte Mod Podge (or gloss if you prefer)
  • Scrap paper to place under what you're gluing
  • Rags, paper towels or baby wipes
  • Scotch tape (to help separate napkin layers)
  • Waxed paper (for smoothing wrinkles)

Tools to bring:

  • Soft, but slightly stiff brush or foam brush
  • Small pointed brush (if you have one)
  • Craft knife
  • Cutting mat
  • Ruler
  • Pencil and eraser
  • Scissors
  • Bone folder
  • Small container for brush cleaning water

Optional materials to bring if you want something different from what is provided:

  • Decorative napkins (many available at Party City in Eureka)
  • Plain background cardstock to make cards or postcards (lighter colors are best)
  • Decorative background paper, such as sheet music or with Chinese writing (the writing will show through napkins which can be good)
  • Blank notecards
  • Dry empty teabags

Materials provided:

  • Multiple decorative paper napkins to choose from
  • Decorative background paper, such as sheet music or with Chinese writing
  • Plain white cardstock (110#) for cards or postcards
