The Third Christmas Project

As promised, here are some pics of the third Christmas Project made at my class last week:



We were shown how to make these little two pocket bags out of a single sheet of 12 x 12 DSP at our last regional training event. I haven't seen any online instructions for them, but if you know of some please let me know and I'll post a link.

The holes for the bag handles are punched using the crop-a-dile, and the outer four holes have been set with Classy Brass Jumbo Eyelets. The ribbon for the bag handles is Real Red 3/8" Grosgrain, and the tags are stamped in Real Red classic ink using the 'Tags for All' stamp set in the current spring Mini (which ends at the end of November...so don't miss out on these groovy stamps).

If you are interested in coming along to one of these classes, just drop me a line at: navarino@yahoo.com and I will email you out the details of the next class. We usually do two cards per class, but for the last one we did three x 3D Christmas projects.

The class is usually held on a Wednesday night from 7:30 pm, although if enough people were interested I could negotiate another date/time. My house is in Kambah, ACT (southside). I charge $10 and this includes all materials for the cards or projects, including SNAIL adhesive, and envelopes for cards. I also provide tea, coffee and hot choc, and some light supper...which may even be a chocolate cake ;-).

Back tomorrow...
Sam.

PS. A big thank you to my blog buddy Karen in NZ for letting me know there is a tute on SCS for these Double-Pocket Bags!

Hi Sam,

I love these little bags too - I have followed Yvonne Campbell's lead and put 6 little cards in mine. I love your use of eyelets though - it finishes them off beautifully.
