English Project

Standard

I’m taking my last English class this semester. In this class we either have to create some kind of project or write a 10 page paper relating to one or more of the novels read during the semester. The books we read are: The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dracula, The Time Machine, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde, and The Turn of the Screw. Being the crafty creative person that I am I decided to create a Journal from the viewpoint of a private investigator investigating the mysteries from The Picture of Dorian Gray. I typed up journal entries, newspaper clippings, “mock” interviews. Then I started on creating the cover for the journal. This is what I have so far:

I measured out the amount of material I needed and then cut the corners.

I cut a piece of cardboard from clothes gift box and then cut it in half.

I glued (with hot glue) the two pieces of cardboard to the material.

Fold and glue all sides down to the cardboard pieces

Semi-finished product! Just waiting to print out my pages and I’m good to go!

I will update later with the finished product!
