Card Class ...

Hi Everybody,

In our card class the other week I had my ladies decorating some of those snack tubs we all love

I let them lose with flowers, ribbons and pearls ... as well as pretty papers, tulle and lace

These delightful tubs look a whole lot more beautiful when they are covered and both ladies are pleased with their efforts.

I have titled them so that you can see the color choices of Mary and Brenda and I think they look so pretty that they could be given as small gifts.

I made some from the larger tubs a while ago and when Isabella saw them she loved them.  Isabella is three and my Great Grand-daughter and when asked which color tub she wanted she said  ...." Er! Both"

On these we have used flowers and pearls strings from Wild Orchid Crafts  and satin ribbons from Mei Flower

More tomorrow ...

Hugs

  2. they did a beautiful job didn't they. i saw your tutorial for the larger tube that was like a chest and made one but didn't think it was good enough to give away so will make some smaller ones like these. you could fill them for easter with tiny choc eggs. hugs to all.

  11. Hi Christina,
    Your ladies have excelled themselves this week with their decorated tubes. I have to admit that I've forced myself to add one to my shopping list this week...purely to be able to decorate it of course, although I guess I may be able to eat the contents as well lol. x
