While brown paper packages tied up with string are hard to beat, may I be so bold as to suggest that brown bookboard boxes covered in decorative paper and gorgeous bookcloth are worthy contenders? In this class, we will learn the basics of box-making:  how to construct a tray, how to cover a tray carefully and accurately, how to create a hinged lid and base, and how to cut and insert a pastedown. You will leave the class with a 4.5 x 6" finished box, instructions to make more, and a knowledge about grain, adhesives, and materials that will send you on your way. In fact, I suspect that the most difficult part of all will be figuring out what special treasures to tuck inside!
