First Class At Scrapbook Parade - Easter Twist Top Box & Card

Monday, March 19th, is my first class at Scrapbook Parade here in Victoria. I'm excited to be a part of the store by teaching classes. Carol has been very accommodating and a joy to work with.

The first project is one that I had posted over a year ago for a class taught in Calgary (you can find here). A treat box, done up in a more contemporary Easter look with stripes. And, this box is a twist-top box that hangs from a looped ribbon. Since my camera dropped and broke around the time I made this sample, Carol kindly took the photo for me. Some thing that can hold a special Easter treat for a son or daughter, or grandchildren. Or, should you be having  a special Easter feast, you may want to have a treat for everyone at the table that they can take home with them.


Nearly every bit of the paper is used for this project. So nice not to have left over scraps! The kind you have to keep, that is, because it would be wasteful to throw out. Only tiny bits so you don't feel guilty throwing it out. Most of the ovals cut out of the frames are used on the card. They look a little like Easter eggs. And the reversed scallop die cut, a piece from cutting out the frames, is used as a frame on the card.

Thank you for stopping by. I'm so excited and happy to teach again and be immersed even more in the world of paper crafting.
