PostSubject: LIVE CRAFT 24TH OCTOBER!!!!   Sat Oct 21, 2017 3:13 pm

Hi Everyone!

As requested by Ann, I am running a live craft event on Tuesday evening.  I will be here from 7pm and I aim to start by 7.15 so please make sure you are here by then.

This is what we will be making, a little house to hold a Terry's Chocolate Orange.



You will need:-

1 piece of A4 card.  I made my first sample from about 160gsm and this was good.  The sample you see me working in the demonstration is 300gsm and I found it too thick to work with, and the top didn’t sit nicely.  I would recommend using card somewhere between 160gsm and 200gsm.  This can be patterned or plain as you wish.
2 pieces of glitter card for the ‘roof’, 2⅝” x 2¾” (Or any other kind of card you would like for your 'roof')
Ribbon to tie all around the box and into a bow
A greeting for the front.
A score board with ⅛” markings or ruler and soft pad to rest on.  (Magazine etc)
Scoring tool
Corner rounder
Fancy Edge punch for ‘roof eaves’ (optional)

See you here on Tuesday!
