Last Saturday we held our Christmas workshop. It seems odd crafting for Christmas when our weather is being so good to us still but needs must and crafting our Christmas projects, for me, always needs to happen about now because we are always so busy with other things later in the year. We had mince pies and a Christmas tree and lots of samples of Christmas projects.
As soon as I saw the mini treat boxes in the seasonal catalogue, I knew that I wanted to make a project with them. I had already been in the process of making boxes to do a box advent calendar at our workshop but the treat boxes provided a fabulous solution as they are cut, scored and ready for decorating with no glue required to stick each box together. The stamp set 25 Days provided the perfect partner to this project.
I took this photo at home just before I stuck all of the boxes together. To enable me to open the boxes, I attached little tabs..you can see a couple.
Our second morning project had been inspired from Pinterest using the Lovely as a Tree set and vellum to make an LED tealight holder. The tree does have some glitter on but it doesn't show up too well here.
The afternoon projects were prepared by Tena and our guests did two cards and a mini cracker using the envelope punch board. Everyone had different papers from the mini stack available in the seasonal catalogue and decorated the top of the cracker to their own taste. I so wish I had taken a photo of one cracker as our guest had used the little leftover cut-aways from the envelope punch board and stuck them together to make a 3d mini ornament. It was such a fabulous idea and looked stunning.
If you would like to place an order from either the Annual or the Seasonal catalogue....or both....then please do get in contact with me. I can also answer any questions you may have about the products or about joining my team as an independent demonstrator.
If you would like to attend our next workshop, this will be held on the 22nd November 2014. More details can be found under the "events" tab above.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the week.
Thank you for stopping by.
