Horn Book

Materials

A friend gave me a tiny wooden paddle-shape…so I HAD to make a hornbook!

copper

I cut some copper sheeting with scissors…

.

.

Lifting Tape papers

…and put double-sided tape along the edges…

.

.

Cow Horn

I cut a rectangle of cow horn and stuck it to the tape.

.

.

ABC

I wrote a tiny alphabet, erased the pencil guidelines, then attached it to the copper and cow horn frame…

.

.

Assembled

…and then stuck the whole sandwich to the wooden paddle. I think it works, though tiny rivets would have been nice instead of all that double-sided tape.

Hornbook

  Nevertheless Zipporah is happy with it…

Dame School

and ready to teach the ABC’s to the teeny tiny wooden girls!
