Community Craft Night

Kelly and I ran a very successful Community Christmas Craft Night at our local Community Centre last night. This was our first one ever and we had 11 people there! We did 4 make and take Christmassy projects that seemed to go down well.

Here is the display of other Christmas inspiration we set up to give people ideas for their own Christmas gifts and cards.
Some of the things in this picture you might recognise from an earlier post ....

Kelly brought along one of her Scrapbooking albums for people to look at as we are hoping to make this a regular event with people learning more about cardmaking and scrapbooking as we go along.

Here is Kelly demonstrating her little hanging bag for the Christmas tree - the best part is, it is full of a Freddo Frog chocolate!

Here are all the lovely ladies that came along .... mostly from our community but also Vicky and Keryn who drove a long way to lend moral support - thanks guys!

Here is the mini pizza box that I demonstrated - the ladies did very well, mastering Rollergraph, measuring, cutting, scoring and sticking all in one go!

Here is the gorgeous Angel - created from 3 punches that we made as tree decorations - so sweet.

I didn't get photos of Kellys projects but I have just remembered that she made me one - I'll have to photograph it later - playgroup is calling!

Donna what a great idea having this community Christmas Inspiration night that you and Kelly had. It looks like it could have been a whole lot of fun too. I love the look of that Christmas angel what were the punches you used for this.
