The 12-page Folded Book began as a flat piece of paper on which we painted, splattered and stamped. Dea showed us the clever way to fold it and where to make two partial cuts before folding it again to its finished size. More embellishments could now be added; I scribed Joyce Kilmer's poem Trees onto the pages in mine.

In the afternoon we made hard covers for Accordion Book with Pockets, then folded the paper for the pages and pockets. Once the pages and covers were assembled we embellished little tags or cards to go into the eight pockets. This was when we got to see individual creativity at it finest.
