Spring is here and our April workshop will provide us with the opportunity to decorate a little "house" book. Diane Williams will teach us this quick and easy structure, but the "decor" will be up to each individual. It doesn't even have to be a "house" although the structure does allow for four different "rooms" or spaces. It could be garden areas or decorate for each season. It lends itself to many great possibilities. Below you will see Diane's example.

Diane will be demonstrating using a 12" x 12" piece of medium weight cardstock. This size will create a 3" square book. You could also use an 8" x 8" piece of cardstock to make a 2" square book. Other materials needed are:

  • Scissors or a craft knife
  • Ruler
  • Your choice of glue: glue stick or liquid glue
  • Cutting mat (optional)
  • Scoreboard (optional)
As you can see from the photos, this will be a quick structure to make, so consider one to use as a model and make a second one to decorate the "rooms" or divided spaces. It stands up nicely to display the four different spaces.

Here are two more examples by Dolores Guffey.
