POP UP and OUT BOOK

Book artist Kit Davey will show us how to make a "Pop Up and Out" book at our August workshop. It's a fun, interactive book. When you turn the pages, a card pops up and out of the structure. The book is designed to contain artist trading cards or playing cards (2 1/2" x 3 1/2"). Kit asks that you plan to embellish your cards before or after the class, as she will focus on making the book to contain them during the workshop.
