Quilling Club - January 21, 2007

"Stuck on Roses" Altered Band Aid Tin
(call Karen at Paper Pals soon to hold your place - 208-883-4287)

The folded rose technique was moved to the January 21 meeting. I look forward to seeing everyone again and hearing about your holidays.

We will create this lovely altered Band Aid tin or other small box and coordinated tag just in time for a special valentine's gift.

What do you put into such a tiny box?
Well, how about:
1. fun brads and other embellishments for an avid card maker or scrapper.
2. yummy chocolates (like those flat square Ghiradelli ones...yum!)
3. assorted gift tags.
4. a gift card or gift certificate to a favorite store
5. a few ATC trading cards
6. tiny scrolls printed with encouraging verses or sayings, rolled and tied with a tiny ribbon.
7. jewelry of all sorts and sizes

See? Lots of uses for this tiny treasure. And the beautiful rose design will make it a 'keeper' for sure!

Purchase background paper, 3/8" quilling strips, box, mulberry paper and ribbon before class. Don't forget quilling tools, glue and tape runner (to stick background paper to box). Project pictured above used:
Holly Lane mistletoe background paper
red quilling paper
green and white mulberry pieces
thin gold ribbon
band aid tin
1/8" green quilling paper for the leaves and tendrils (I will provide this)

If we get things done quickly, I will also demonstrate how to create Froebel stars - a very lovely folded star that can be dipped in hot wax for a simple but elegant decoration or package trim.

OOHHH... Love the Band-aid tins!
I've used a number of times, even included them in CQ monthly kit a few months ago.

Hope you had a great class.
