Recipes Circle Pages Book!

In this little lesson, we'll make a simple book with folded circle pages.

You will need:

* 5 paper plates (or any circle paper for your pages - coffee filter, doily, trace something round on any paper and cut out circles)

* Glue (I used tacky glue and glue stick - use what you have, what works best with the materials you choose)

* 2 pieces of yarn or ribbon (I used 2 pieces of ribbon, cut to 12" each)

* cardboard (cereal or cookie or cracker boxes work great! see what you have handy, use that)

* marker or pencil

* scissors


* bone folder, spoon, popsicle stick, or any tool you can use to crease your pages

* decorative paper for the cover - use some of those papers you created in previous lessons! or try wrapping paper, papers out of your recycle bin, whatever you like.

Prepare your space:

* cover your work area

* lay your materials and tools out where you can reach them, leaving space for you to do your work

* keep drinking water nearby

* be sure your mark-maker works and your coloring materials are within reach

* music? light? whatever makes it your ideal creative workspace, do that!

The work:

* fold a paper circle in half, crease well

* fold in half again, crease well

* open plate, recrease each fold so that there are 'mountain' folds going each direction

* press sides in as you press the circle into a quarter of the circle, following the creases you created

* repeat with remaining 4 circle papers

* glue around edges and middle of first page, lay another on top and hold in place for a count of 30.

* repeat with remaining pages, be sure to hold for 30 seconds between adding pages

* lay your pages on the cardboard and trace 2x

* cut out covers

* cut string

* glue ribbon to top page, with excess ribbon hanging over the curved, opening edge of the page

* add glue, and glue cover to the book. hold for 30 seconds

* flip and repeat on the other side

* decorate your covers however you'd like - I cut two pieces of decorative paper and glued them to each cover.

* add a title, fill your pages!

* you may want to fill your pages before you assemble the book. I recommend folding them first, so you know where your writing/illustrations will fall, but it's up to you how you'd like to do it!


* consider non-tradition recipes! recipes for adventure, recipes for fun, recipes for relaxation!

* share recipes with family and friends

Have Fun! Be kind to yourself and each other.
