About this class
I’ve got SOMETHING SWEET for you, just in time for Valentine’s Day! I love this holiday as a chance to celebrate ALL of the people that I love, the people that make my life better, and nothing says “I love you, I care about you and I appreciate you” than a handmade gift from the heart.
In this class, I’ll walk you through how to build a folder-style card that holds SO many fun elements. You can make them ALL for one person, or take the parts and pieces and make smaller gifts for a lot of people. Whether you join me and go all in on the ruffles and pink and stick to the LOVE theme, or swap it up and re-theme these ideas for another occasion, I can’t wait to see what you make!
