Michael Jacobs Book Structure Class - Day 1

Today was the first day of a two day class with Michael Jacobs. He is co-author of the book, Creative Corresponce, which I own and highly recommend. You can find it here:

He has another recently published book called, Cards That Pop-Up, Flip & Slide, that I want to purchase. He has few for sell in class so I hope to get one from him and have it and my Creative Correspondence books autographed tomorrow. You can find it here:

In today's class we made a small pyramid structure with a 3 drawer structure for its base. The drawers are made from empty match boxes covered with decorative paper.

We also used the match boxes to make another structure of our own choice. We had to use 10 match boxes. I made a structure with two levels of match boxes formed into a square out of 4 boxes each. The feet for the entire structure is two match boxes. Between the two level of match boxes, I but an accordian book structure.

Finally, we made a small folded book with a cardstock protector sleeve. The book is made out of squares folded to have pockets and attached to each other. It all folds up and is held in the cardstock protector sleeve.
