Guild Meeting
Thursday, March 24, 5 - 7PM
Blue Room,  Pioneer Park


We are all collectors of clever ways to transform pieces of paper into clever, structural forms. Our March meeting will add four terrific folds to your repertoire:
The Puffy Pentagon Box
a festive gift box for small treasures
The Origami Message Box
 a perfect vessel for that special note
The Pyramid Box
 a structured gift box with an Asian flair
The Envelope Pocket (not pictured)
 an over-sized envelope transformed into a multi-pocketed page

The magic of these folds will be introduced by Laurel Herbeck, Lois Henderson, Margo Klass, and Oralee Nudson.  Come to the meeting ready to make models of all four structures. 

For this activity you will need to bring: c utting mat, X-Acto knife, ruler, bone folder, awl, scissors, pencil, and graduated metal edges (optional).

"Recycled , Repurposed"

This month's book exchange is "Recycled, Repurposed" and will feature books made from materials which have been repurposed or recycled. So dig out those recycled materials you have been collecting and join us for the exchange!  As always, the book exchange is optional. For inspiration, see photos of the "Calendar" books exchanged at the January meeting here.
