Flag books are very eye-catching and often contain several different images. But they can also be a great structure to use for a large single image. Our November workshop will feature a fish named Arowana and an instructor named Edge Gerring who will show us how to create this single image flag book. Edge will provide an image of Arowana but you can use any image that will fit on the 5" x 11" background.


Edge will provide:  Instruction sheet and Arowana image
These will be emailed to you upon RSVP.

Participants need:
  • Pencil and metal edged ruler
  • Scissors, cutting knife and mat
  • Bone folder (scoring board and scoring tool are optional)
  • Glue: PVA, Elmer's, Tacky or extra strong glue stick
  • One (1) piece background card stock 5" x 11" grain short - or any paper that will take 1/2" accordion folds well.
  • One (1) copy of Arowana (or your similar sized image) on cardstock
  • Two (2) covers: stiff board 1 1/2" x 5" grain long
  • Two (2) cover papers 3 1/2" x 6"
  • Optional: paper, cord, ribbon, etc. for a belly band
Here are a couple more images to give you an idea of how this structure goes together.
