I'm so excited about this project!! Here is what we will be making during Girls Club this month:
It's a little purse made out of an Altoids tin! Some of the products used here are retired (the paisley DSP is Sarah from the 2006-2007 Idea Book & Catalog, and the grosgrain ribbon is the old Bluebird which matches Brocade Blue) but I used the new Time Well Spent stamp set that is SO adorable! Here is another view:
The ribbon is secured with the two Brocade brads, which keeps the inside nice and flat - better than tying knots. On the inside, I created a vellum pocket to hold little notes or name cards...
...while the other side has an accoridian pull out to hold photos and journaling, or even autographs from friends! I got the idea for the pull out from this post on Splitcoast. The photos I've used here are of my dearest friend Audrey's two precious little girls. They live in Scotland. ("Hi Audrey! xoxo")
So that is what the girls will make on Saturday, January 26th at 2pm. Girls ages 8-15 are welcome - sign up now to hold your spot! All supplies are included with the exception of adhesive. I recommend the girls also bring a pair of snips so they don't have to wait to use mine. The cost is $10 per child. Moms are always welcome (and encouraged for the younger girls) to stay and help! Normally I offer the same project to Moms, but I won't be doing that this month because of the complexity of this project.
HOWEVER... I've got more great ideas for these little tins, and I'm working on samples to show you. So stay tuned! I will be holding a Stamp Camp in the coming weeks where the big girls (ie. adults) can come and make one!
I hope to see you soon!
