About this class
Nothing says “Halloween” quite like a Haunted Mansion complete with ghosts, jack-0-lanterns, hidden doorways, and corridors that open up to reveal your spookiest of memories. This October, join me for an all-new online workshop guaranteed to thrill! We will start building from the ground up, working with templates, combining chipboard and paper… and maybe just a little witchcraft. You have never created an interactive, immersive DIY book quite like this one! So gather your scissors, and glue… print your photos too. These rooftops and doors open to capture the most magnificent Halloween frights.
All class lessons will be available on Wednesday, October 6th at 8am ET.
