Folded Secrets books contain many 3D compartments. The traditional versions from Yunnan have distinctive red cloth covers with tassels and are decorated inside with birds, flowers, figures, and tiny triangles. On day one you will construct and start to decorate your book; on day two you will complete the decoration and add a cloth or paper cover. A cutting layout is provided before the workshop so that you can come prepared with the paper cut ready for folding.
Materials cost from 10.00
