Christmas in July - now booking!
It's that time of year again where I host my now traditional Christmas in July class. It's a great time to get ahead and make a few things all ready for the Christmas rush! Here's what we'll be making this time around.
First of all we will be making this origami box. I have used the Holly Berry specialty papers for this class as I feel they can be used for either Christmas or any other occasion, depending on which pattern you choose.
Inside the box are four 3x3 Christmas cards complete with matching envelopes. This set could either be given as a gift by itself, or you could keep the cards for use by yourself and use the box to house a different gift. It's entirely up to you.
The next thing we will be making is a gorgeous little pouch, which we will fill with tags made using this month's featured stamp set, Tags Til Christmas. Again, you could use the tags yourself and fill the pouch with other goodies to give as a gift if you prefer.
I'll also show you how to make this quick and easy gift holder using just a small piece of patterned paper. Perfect for a few sweets or small gift - you could even make 24 and have it as your Advent Calendar!
Finally, saving the best 'til last, we will make this beautiful Christmas star ornament that can be a gift all in itself - the inside can be filled with photographs to make a beautiful mini scrapbook album!

As ever, any questions just let me know, otherwise I hope to see you there!
