Charity Craft Event Nov 2011

I recently held two classes at a charity event held in a local church. I met some lovely ladies again this year and we had fun making a mini scrapbook in the morning class and tags and treats in the afternoon. The event raised in the region of £430 which will be sent to help children in need in South Africa.

The mini scrapbook was taken from a design by Becki Roberts, a talented SU demonstrator in the US. The book itself was make from one sheet of 12" x 12" old olive card which was scored and folded to make a book with pockets to hold tags. It makes an ideal gift and an easy way to display photos of a family Christmas or indeed any event like a holiday in different colours.

The 3 pillow boxes were made with the assistance of the great Big Shot die cutting machine, which enables quick and easy cutting and embossing. They were stacked and tied with ribbon and a tag added. Fill with chocolates or any small gifts!

The chocolate treat bag was again made with the Big Shot and the Scallop Circle was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and added as a great topper. The gift tags were stamped with the Tags til Christmas set, with the wreath from the Welcome Christmas stamp set and the gift card holder was made using the top note die and Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.

All the items (apart from the stripe ribbon and gold elastic cord) to make these goodies are available from the catalogue, the link to browse is on your right! Have a flick through and simply e-mail me to place an order.
