Denise Brady and Julie Sopscak

Decorative Lidded Boxes


Saturday, October 7th, 1:00-4:30 p.m. 

In this workshop, we will learn how to create a small, decorative lidded box using binders board, patterned or handmade papers, and decorative buttons or beads. Step-by-step instructions and a supplier list will be provided, as well as all necessary materials, but bring your own papers, doodads, and book making tools if there's anything specific you hope to incorporate. 

*Your box will need additional drying time under weight. Please plan to set it up at a safe place at home soon after the class wraps in order to keep the moisture from warping the board as it dries or to leave it to finish drying at Postscript, where it can be picked up after 48 hours.*
