Santa's Workshop-Thursday, December 4th 6:30-8:30 p.m.

For the Elves in Santa's Workshop giftables class we will be making a variety of things this year. The cost is $22 and includes your choice of designer series paper from either the Winter Mini catalog or Big Fall and Winter catalog. Register, pay and provide your paper choice by November 26th. Embellishments will vary a bit depending upon the colors in your paper of course.

Here are the gifts and gift boxes you will make with your designer paper choice. Clockwise from top left/11 o'clock: First is a lip balm holder which makes a cute stocking stuffer. Second is the corner bookmark that is finished front and back. You probably saw this on one of my blog posts last month. Third is the largest gift, an altered DVD tin. It is shown open below, and it includes a notepad, pen and jumbo paper clip. Fourth is a mini pizza box which is perfect for small gifts. Fifth is Lyssa Z.'s Haiku box which will include either a cream (shown) or silver hodgepodge hardware piece depending upon the background color of your paper. I hope it isn't too difficult to envision your favorite paper used with coordinating cardstock on these projects?.

The lip balm is from Avon and is available in the four colors shown below: Sugar Cookie, Candy Cane, Gingerbread and Wintermint. Be sure to let me know if you don't like one of the flavors. Otherwise, I'll just pick the best coordinate for your paper choice. Also shown below are three of the tags we will make. You can of course change these up a bit, and the fourth picture is the back side of the A Very Merry Christmas tag.
The fourth tag is a Santa metal-edged tag, and the ornament is not shown, but I will update soon. :)
