Are you stumped for gift ideas? Searching for something different and unique for the book lover in your life? What about folded-book art that you can make yourself? Learn how to recycle old books into creative works of art at a special program, “Recycle Books Project – Design By You,” on Friday, June 16, from 2:00 to 3:30 pm, at Fort Bend County Libraries’ Sugar Land Branch Library, located at 550 Eldridge.
Library staff will demonstrate how to take an old book and make words and images by folding the pages. No cutting, gluing, or special equipment is needed for this simple craft project. The project is a fun way to re-use old books and give them a new purpose. The resulting piece of art can be a great gift for someone who loves to read.
Materials for the class will be supplied. Those attending the program will receive additional patterns to take with them and work on at their leisure.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Sugar Land Branch Library at 281-238-2140 or the library system’s Public Information Office at 281-633-4734.
