March Workshop Project & Details

Hi everyone!  I hope your spring break has been as great as mine.  I love it when you have enough time to do the things you need to do, plus lots of time to do the fun stuff.  That's why I am a little late getting the details for our March workshop posted - I was having way too much fun this week!!  But here it is... first things first though,

Jana Baker if you are reading this before Sunday, March 20, Close this now!  It will spoil your birthday gift!!  :)

If you are not Jana, scroll down to see all the photos and details for the project.







I have had several requests for this cute little stationary box ever since we started back to workshops in January.  There will be a couple of color choices available.   A limited number of packets with each color scheme will be available.  Arrive a little early to get the first pick. 

Above is the box with lid closed. Next is the view of the open box with cards and tags.  This box holds 2 (A2 - invitation size) cards and envelopes, 2 (3"X2") gift tags, and 2 (3"X3") enclosure cards.  In addition it has a built in book for recording birthdays and special days and holds a small book of stamps.

Yep!  We are going to make all of this!  Can you believe it?  I hope you can join us.

Date:  Friday, March 25
Project:  Stationary box shown in this post
Place: Jazzercise of Denton (let me know if you need directions)

Cost:17.00  Please let me know if you would like me to email you a paypal invoice.
RSVP deadline:  Wednesday, March 23

Supplies needed: Basic paper crafting tool kit, a needle and about 20" of nuetral thread, your sponge dauber and distressing ink if you like to ink distress your stamping projects and the following will help you have great success with this project. 
1. Terrifically Tack Tape - That super sticky red double sided adhesive tape.  If you have non stick scissors they are really great with this product.  If not be sure that you have a pair of scissors that are for cutting this tape only.  It can get messy!
2.  Small glue dots - I used the "mini Dot n Go" glue dots.  I got them at Michael's (who also carries the super sticky red tape.)  These glue dots are perfect for adhering all of the little rhinestones in this project.

This is a super fun project - When you are finished you will have 2 (A2) cards and envelopes, 2 enclosure cards, 2 gift tags and a box to store them in that includes a birthday book and postage storage.

Have a great weekend & Thanks for checking in today!
