Book Play: Free Project Download

November 19, 2013, 14:28 pm  Posted by Lark

The holiday season—quite possibly the craftiest time of the year—is here again! If you’re planning to go the DIY route with your gifts this Christmas (and we wholeheartedly encourage you to do so), then pick up a copy of Book Play: Creative Adventures in Handmade Books. In this accessible how-to guide, Margaret Couch Cogswell (Asheville’s resident book-making genius) shares inventive ideas for making practical yet pretty notebooks, fun accordion books, and innovative journals, all of which can be customized to suit the lucky recipients on your gift list. In addition to traditional bookmaking projects, you’ll find plenty of out-of-the-ordinary options, including books on wheels, a book ball, and a book that can be worn on the head!

To set the mood for a crafty Christmas, we’re offering a free project from Book Play. The clever little Matchbox Books shown above are perfectly sized for stuffing stockings. Download the free instructions here.

You can find Book Play at Barnes & Noble and wherever books are sold.
