Elegant Gift Box & Card in One, with Annette



Construct an elegant card and gift box in one!  The card is the top of the box and, when you lift the flaps on the side, you have a gift box for enclosing treats of your choice (e.g. soap, candy bars).  A gift card/greeting tag/money slot is also part of the design.
The pre-cutting will all be done for you so your primary goal will be learning how to “build” the structure including where to place the magnets so that the box is totally functional.  You will go home with an extra sample (unfinished) so that you can refer to it as needed.  Of course, you will also have detailed instructions.
Dates:
Saturday, April 11, 2015
10:00 am to 3:30 pm

Cost: $38.00 

Class Supplies:

basic kit
full size score board (ScorPal OR Martha Stewart)
trimmer – allow for a 10” cut
tools for cutting (trimmer WITHOUT a rotary blade OR knife and metal edge ruler OR precision scissors)
Mustard Seed Distress Ink pad and sponge
corner rounder punch
recommended – sanding block

Valentines for Friends & Family, with Maresa


Remember in Elementary school, how much fun it was on Valentine's Day to open up your "mailbox" and look through all the cards that your friends left for you?  As adults we tend to only focus on our significant others on Feburary 14th, and as such it is often hard to find less "smoochy-lovey-feel-y" cards to give to friends and family.  This class features four cards that are more friendship oriented, leaving you the option to add a more personal message on the inside. 

This class showcases using products in multiple ways, to achieve different looks, thus getting more bang for your buck.  There will also be more great tips & tricks - such as creating that perfect shade of cardstock, and creating custom embellishments.
