This attractive box has the appearance of a book and can be custom made to fit a book or small object. In this class you will be guided through the steps in making a quarter-leather drop-spine box with a rounded spine and raised bands. Everyone will make the same-size box using precut materials and we will also learn measuring and cutting techniques so you can make boxes on your own when you return home.
