Kitting today, Packing tomorrow, Teaching Saturday and Sunday

Nov 10, 2011

Today, I’m getting ready for a fun filled weekend teaching three classes at The Crafty Scrapper.

Saturday, the 12th at 10:30 I will be teaching the Vintage Holiday Ornament Trio Class.

In this class I will help you re-create three unique ornaments to give as gifts to friends and family or keep for yourself and use as decorations in your own home this holiday season. You will alter two different types of vintage aluminum Jello tins and one vintage ceramic angel that comes numbered with a Japan sticker on the bottom. We will be using paint, alcohol ink, three different kinds of glitter (no surprise there) as well as unique holiday embellishments to accent each ornament

Saturday, the 12th at 3:00 I will be teaching a Jewelry class.

In this class you will learn how to create two bracelets. The popular wrap bracelets using buttons and waxed linen and a bracelet created using Leather Cord and Waxed Linen that is accented with all sorts of interesting baubles. You will create two charms a vintage style charm using a wooden spool that is accented with vintage ephemera and an adorable Pom Pom charm topped with seam binding. Then we will complete the class learning how to make a brooch/headband accent using Zipper trim.I will bring other bracelets and Zipper brooches I have created and give you quick tips and tutorials on how I created each one. You will leave this class filled with lots of ideas to create items for all the girls on your Holiday list.

Then Sunday, the 13th at 11:00 I will be teaching the “Christmas Wishes” class.

In this class you will create a home décor piece and holiday ornament using a fun mixture of new and vintage items. Some of the vintage items being used are mercury glass ornaments, sheet music, images from vintage cards, lace trim, aluminum garland and tinsel. I’ve been collecting these vintage items with this class in mind from flea markets and thrift stores all year long. We will collage, paint, ink, glitter and of course Stickle while creating these two projects.Once completed you can place the altered holiday tray on an easel or attach a hanger to the back. This will be left up to you to decide. The ornament can be hung on your tree or placed in a frame to use as a holiday décor piece.

Looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend.
