Making A Mystery: Hidden Compartment Boxes

By The Bindery (other events)

Saturday, July 9 2022 1:00 PM 4:00 PM CDT

Create a box that confuses, delights, and holds your small treasures. In this workshop, participants will learn the secret steps to create their own mystery box! Using pre-cut and provided materials, participants will learn proper measuring, cutting, and wrapping techniques to create a box with separate compartments that are only revealed when the lid is opened a certain way.  A little book-arts magic!

Follow along step-by-step with instructor, Melissa Wagner-Lawler in our beautiful community makerspace. The instructions used to make this box can be translated to all different sizes for your next box making adventure at home.

While this is a beginner class, experience with fine cutting and gluing is highly recommended as this box needs to be precise to function correctly. Not feeling up for the challenge quite yet? Try out our basic box making class in August instead!
