Sally was back teaching different paper crafting techniques in her monthly card club class @ The Cove! This month, we decorated a gift box that was perfect to hold your handmade cards, or a small gift. The gift box was covered with pretty designer paper, blinged out with Kaisercraft rhinestones & flowers, and we even made our own ribbon handle. Check out the photos from the class in the sidebar to the left.
Sally showed us how to use liquid adhesive & a brayer which was the best medium to evenly adhere the designer paper to the glossy finish on the box. We got to decorate with bling rhinestones - gotta love the bling. And we finished off the box by creating our own cute handles with the crop-a-dile, some paper flowers and ribbon. The transformation from plain white box to cute, adorable keepsake was fun and easy.
Next, we got to play with rub-ons and more bling while learning how to make a waterfall card. Who knew rub-ons could be so easy to use? I'm sure you've all had your own experiences with rub-ons...they don't come off when you want them to, sometimes you miss a spot and sometimes you rub off more than you wanted. Sally taught us some great tips & tricks that made them so easy and less intimidating. The Kaisercraft rub-ons came off so easily and with little effort. They really added a nice touch to our card.
Hope you can join us next month...we'll be altering CD's and turning them into gorgeous Thank You cards. I'll be posting a photo of the sample soon.
