I have two Christmas classes scheduled at Paper Crown this year. First is the Bingo Card inspired Advent Calendar. It's about 9"x13"ish and made to look like a vintage bingo card. I wanted to come up with a way to countdown the days til Christmas without having take away/add pieces making it necessary to store them somewhere. So....I made teeny little hangers for inchies that are decorated on one side and have the countdown on the other side. Let me show you...
The top a little closer:
The bottom of a bingo card has instructions so I used that space to explain how to use the calendar:
A couple of inchie close-ups (see the cute little hangers...bra hooks!):
The last two photos show how it looks displayed with one of the inchies turned over to the countdown side. The idea is to have only the appropriate countdown side showing each day so that it always displays the decorative side of the inchies. Make sense? If not I'll explain in better in class.
The Bingo Advent Calendar class has been rescheduled and will be held on:
Sunday, November 13th from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

My second class is one I taught a couple of years ago. It filled up fast and was a great success so I thought it was worth another go-round. It's this wonderful garland made with stained tinsel pipe cleaners and very old, very special vintage silk ribbon.
The garland is 9 feet long with 12 bulbs. It's my favorite craft I've ever created:) I thought some of the girls who made one before might want a second one. The bad thing about this craft is the limited quantity of the vintage ribbon that works so beautifully for the construction. I need to find a modern substitute but have, so far, been unsuccessful.
The Tinsel Garland Class is:
Saturday, December 3rd from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

I'm really excited for both of these classes:)
