Workshop MONDAY October 6th

I am having my first EVER workshop next Monday. I will be demonstrating basic stamping and Origami box folding. I am an art teacher so you would think that I would be used to this sort of thing, but I am a little bit nervous.....I am sure it will be fine...I am really excited to teach people how to make something so simple that will make such a great inexpensive gift! Can you believe that it is already October!! I have started my Christmas planning....a bit of shopping and card designing are helping to get me in the spirit already!

The basic box is just black and white using the Adorable stamp set from CTMH. Check out this version of the box using snowflake stamps:

Ooh, here is a sneak peak at my next workshop in November. I am still working on the prototypes, but this one includes stamping on transparencies and using holographic embossing powder!

Finally, I thought I would give you a peek at my most recent hostess gift. I have been playing around with my new coluzzle cutting system and my scallop punch. I found these great 'Chinese takeout' style gift boxes at Big Lots for just 75 cents!! So I made a tag for the front and a few simple note cards for the inside. I threw in some hand made envelopes and sticker seals and VIOLA!! A cheap, handmade, super cute gift for my hostesses. I had a home gathering last week and I have 5 more between now and Christmas!!! Business is really growing and my Hostess of the Month Club is hopping!!

I think your boxes are great.
I wish I could find the stamp sets here in Italy , but I live in a little town and the only big Craft store here doesn't have these.
I wish you Good Luck for your October workshop, I am sure you'll do fine.
