Since we, and most of the world, are staying home in hope of flattening the curve of coronavirus cases, this blog will strive to offer suggestions and projects from some of our members. We will try to update the blog every two weeks, so be sure to check in for new ideas as well as information about when regular NORBAG workshops will resume. Remember to scroll down for previous projects sent by our members.

Let's celebrate friendships with another one of Margaret Beech's contributions. This sweet book can be adapted to suit any occasion, but Margaret's friendship theme works very well during this time of sheltering in place. As soon as Margaret sent these instructions I had to try it so I made this book to send to a dear friend.

Here are Margaret's instructions and templates. You can click on the photo to see a larger version of the image.

At least two of our members enjoy making tiny structures. Randi Parkhurst has been designing 1" structures that Edge Gerring is calling "Onesies". Here is Randi's house model with a tiny box. These two are each made from a single sheet of paper with Randi's box template following.

Randi also designed a 1" accordion book with different cut-outs. Here is the template followed by some photos of her colorful little book.
