COVER CLOTH AND PAPERS
Part of the fun is choosing your own cover materials, so we are asking you to bring

  •  two 12X12 pieces of decorative paper for your cover, 
  • and 1/4 yard of fabric for your bookcloth. 
  •  You also will need two 12X12 pieces for the flyleaves/end papers (card stock weight works best), or we will have flyleaf paper available to purchase. 
 You can find paper anywhere scrapbooking supplies are sold. Mixing and matching colors and patterns makes your book look creative and personal.
