October Advanced Papercraft Class - Christmas Decorations

Tonight I was at Joy's advanced papercraft class along with some of our lovely crafty friends.   Highlight of the night was when Joy and Toni managed to drop Toni's half-made decoration in my cup of tea....  and then dunk it while trying to rescue it...     

We used Carta Bella papers , cut into little arrow tips, used ultra sticky doublesided tape along each point, and along the long edge on the background - all the pieces were stuck together and then 'smashed' down on a round piece of cardboard with a glue gun.  The tape was then taken off the points and embossed with Stampendous Champagne embossing powder.   The centre of the decoration was from an old earring, again stuck down with glue guns.   THis class will be repeated on Saturday morning if you are interested... I loved it!!
