Quick gift and card class

I thought I should share with you the samples for this weeks classes. I wanted to create some simple but lovely projects you could easily make many of, to give out to loved ones.

The first project is a simple petal cone adorned with a generous bow and glittery embellishment. You could fill this with so many things as its a nice size. The beautiful paper is the Natural Composition Speciality, it has an embossed shiny image and its a great weight for box making. I have bought tons of this, love!

Then I had to make a spinner card with the beautiful Snowflake Soiree stamp set. I resisted this set for so long, but the beautiful detail in the snowflakes won me over. These cards are easy and fun to make and lots of fun to play with. If you don't know what a spinner card is, the snowflake spins from side to side. The card is dusted with loads of champagne glitter mist, which I just could not capture in the photograph.

These really cute gingerbread men cookies totally captured my heart when I saw them in the shops, so, of course I purchased them and then came home and found a way to make them extra special. These little treat holders are so easy you could make 50 in a day, so perfect for the kids to share with their friends. Cookie is included with the class. The little cards which fit in the holder were inspired by Marelle Taylor who recently shared the most beautiful card at the Heartfelt Stampers Event held in the city last Saturday. I just had to go home and use the idea.

Gift bags are always useful at this time of year, and this bag in a box is perfect for so many things. I have used mine for some lovely handcream. It includes a cute shaker box tag and again is sprayed with my champagne glitter spray. The photo is not the best, but hopefully you get the idea.
I am offering the class on this Wednesday the 14th and Saturday the 17th at 10am. Class cost is $20 and includes all materials and tool use.
Please email me asap if you would like to attend so I can prepare kits.
Bye for now.
