Description: Learn how to make a collapsable book cradle with a slip case – a perfect design for taking this
helpful tool along when you travel. While book cradles are indispensable for punching holes in
signatures prior to sewing, they can be expensive and take up a lot of space in the studio. Not so
with this clever, compact solution! In addition to creating a slip case to hold the pieces of your book
cradle, we will explore further uses and variations of the slip case and its application to innovative
book structures.
