I like making crafts, but I only do so within the safety of a list of supplies and easy-to-follow directions.
Last year, after I inherited my mother’s family Bible, I decided I wanted to try to restore it myself. I got one quote, and the price tag was well above my budget, and I figured it’s always good to learn new skills, right?
Well, stupid Covid19 messed up all of the classes I wanted to take. Instead of a bunch of book binding classes, I ended up learning how to make a clam shell box for a book or set of books.
(Fingers crossed that things will be back to normal next year)
Basically it’s a nice way to store old, valuable, or delicate books.
The class was via Zoom, so I was at my kitchen table the whole time. I have to admit that was kind of nice.
This was our final product! There would normally be a book inside, but we did this to predetermined dimensions that made the supplies easy to ship.
Stay tuned over the next few weeks as I attempt to make one of these for my Fairy Tale Academy series.
I’m off to buy what I need today! It might be amazing, and it might be an epic disaster. Come back next week to find out!
