Flower Box Class

Yesterday four of my class ladies came to learn how to make a "card in a box".  
 
I have made many different versions over the last few years and knew that they were quite time consuming, but hadn't realised just how much time they took.  So glad I pre-cut and scored all the basic box elements, cut the leaves and the pieces of window sheet to mount the flowers on.  We started at 1pm and finished around 6.30pm with a well earned stop for scones and lemon curd sponge somewhere in there as well.
 
In retrospect it would have been a little easier if they had all made the same colours and flower style, but, hey, they had fun choosing their colours and design as they each knew who they were making their box for.
 
Unfortunately, with finishing so late, I totally forgot to take some photos of the finished boxes. 
 
One lady chose to make the spiral roses in yellow and cream and two made their flowers from the Flower Shop set - one in multi colours and one in blue - and the other lady decided on a balloon theme in Dapper Denim.  Two of these ladies are complete beginners and other two are fairly new to stamping, so this was quite a project for them, but they all loved it.
 
As I am unable to show yesterday's creations I have added some photos of ones I have done previously.

This is the style using the spiral rose die:

and a fun one for my Grandson!!


Thanks for popping in, I hope you enjoyed hearing about my fun day yesterday.  It really is lovely being able to share something you enjoy with others.  I know I should have started these classes sooner.
