Christmas Card Class

Stampin' Up! Merry Mice Gift Bag of Cards

During the recent school holidays I hosted a class of 10 and 12 year olds who made a cute gift bag with three matching cards inside.

If you have been following me for a while, you will know that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the cute Designer Series Paper Bag-in-a-box gift bags that my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator in the UK, Caroline Hallet created a great video for.  I have made heaps of them now with all different themes and styles.

For the class, I decided to use up some of last year's Designer Series Paper Christmas patterns - because I hadn't met any of the girls before, and wasn't sure how they would go, and since I had a fair bit of this paper, I could cut extras. I love the size of these bags, because you get 3 bags per 12 x 12" sheet of paper.

We stamped the images just in Black Stazon Ink and added labels in Cherry Cobbler.

Because the class was just for two hours, this is as far as we got, and the girls were instructed they could either colour the images themselves at home, or they could give them as a "Colouring In" gift to a friend.

They liked this idea!

Later on, I came back and coloured mine and sent them photos on their phone.

In keeping with the very simple style of the cards, I limited the colouring to just three colours - Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Marina Mist, all applied with Blender Pens.

They really are very sweet, right?

The Merry Mice stamp set is available in Stampin' Up! quality red rubber in the wood mount or clear mount.

What a great class Kathryn. I'm sure the girls would have loved it too, especially making the bag as well. Looks lovely.

Thanks Mary, yes the girls and their mums loved the bags! It's such a great design and perfect for a little gift of note cards or choccies!
