Card Art Fun
A Facebook post by Papersource reminded me how much fun it is to make your own cards with kids (odd that I needed that, given I love to make them myself!) and did some local research. When my daughter turned nine, we even did this as a Birthday Party, learning how to make pop-up cards. You can find directions on Pinterest, of course, for all versions of everything, but some of these classes seemed like a fun outing for Grandys, especially when combined with say, Café Latte, across the street from the Grand Avenue Papersource! I think it is so fun for both ages to be learning a new skill together! Join their Facebook and Instagram pages to keep up on new class offerings - there is probably one near you. Here are your Saint Paul options…
http://www.papersource.com/workshops/index.html Papersource has several card-making offerings this month that look really great. $30. And, consider getting a gang together to host a workshop, maybe even with your galpals for a “crafternoon” (remember those great Grand Avenue lunch spots?!)
http://www.anchorpaper.com/index.php/express-stores/express-club/upcoming-classes Anchor Express stores also have monthly card-making classes, highlighting their paper and stamp offerings. $20-25.
