Come Make an Envelope Book & Learn About Hashtagging!

Due to unfortunate circumstances, our March book-making had to be postponed until May. Big thanks to Rose Wathen for stepping in with a program for everyone to enjoy on lettering!

This is the easiest book you will ever make! It requires no sewing, cutting, or glueing! At our May meeting, everyone will get to make a small book out of envelopes. It can be used as a sampler, a mini journal or a gift for a friend. Four envelopes will be provided, but these books are so easy to make, you might want to bring some of your own envelopes to make another one! All of the envelopes must be the same size but can be different colors. You might also want to bring embellishments such as tiny envelopes, Washi tape, rubber stamps, and scrapbook type patterned papers. These will enhance your book but can be added at any time with a glue stick or glue dots. If you wish to decorate your book, it would help if you bring scissors and glue.

As an added bonus, Miranda Fuller will demonstrate how to post photos of your books or other work to social media using the hashtag #nashvillecalligraphersguild. To learn more about hashtags, please see her entry in the May newsletter or visit our blog.
