VAIL — The Vail Public Library welcomes back local artist and author Helen Hiebert at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 5 for another fun, hands-on paper project. Enjoy a festive evening with Hiebert as she shows participants how to create shadow ornaments which are featured in her book, “Playing with Paper.” Attendees can make an ornament for their tree or to give as a holiday gift.

Hiebert’s immensely popular paper lantern workshops, in conjunction with Art in Public Places and Vail Holidaze, attracted more than 100 participants during the 2013 winter holidays. Recently, she hosted two successful workshops at the library, “Personalized Greeting Cards” and “Brag Books.”
