This is a single-session online workshop.

Making a little accordion book that fits into an upcycled tin is so satisfying. At first glance it just looks like an adorable decorated box but on opening a marvelous handmade pop-up book is revealed. 

In this class we will be using collage such as recycled maps, postcards, and other paper ephemera to create an accordion book with pop-up elements enclosed in a hard cover front and back. This will fit neatly into an embellished tin (Altoid tin size) that can display the book’s title or associated imagery. 

Beginners are welcome; be aware that class will move briskly.

Materials to Bring: 

  • Altoid tin, approx 3¾“ x 2½ ” or similar
  • Paper for accordion 3” x 10”, 75–100lbs (construction paper weight ), any color
  • Collage materials such as postcards, maps, old calendars, and other paper ephemera
  • Mat Board, 2 pieces approx 3” x 2”
  • Scissors, decorative edged ones too if available
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Glue stick


  • Matte acrylic medium, Mod Podge, or PVA
  • Hole punch
  • Washi tape; ¼ “ width works great for this tin size
  • Watercolors/inks/acrylic inks and brushes

Workshop Fee: $45

Date & Time: Thursday, October 15, 2020 :: 5-7pm Pacific time
