About this class
There is just nothing better than a box full of happiness, and that’s exactly what we will be creating in this class! We will be starting with this specialty magnetized, beautifully constructed white paper box, and the chipboard pieces included inside to create 5 super fresh cards, AND a 17-page 4”x6” handcrafted mini-book, complete with super-secret interactive elements, fun surprises and unique techniques that you can replicate and repeat over and over on cards and mini-books any size and any shape! YES, we will be filling that little book up with memories… and exploring FUN, simple ways to add charm and meaning through stamping and embellishments! Won’t you join me as I open up my “Box of Tricks”!? Take a breath of my newest “FRESH AIR” collection, and let’s make pretty stuff together!
