Here are directions for eight books for you to make and share. Visit my blog for lots of ideas on how to use them. A new project is posted monthly and the old ones are available for viewing. Try a Color Poem Book, A Leaf Book for fall, a Gingerbread House Accordion for the holidays, or a Summer Journal. And while you're here, check out the center square for a tour of my collection of books from around the world.

I met Laura at a workshop and she kindly volunteered to do the translations. You can help too! If you would like to contribute to making these projects available to a wider audience by translating them into your language, please contact Susan.
