"Card Class makes"

Hello and welcome to my creative corner.
I will mention now that I will probably not get round to commenting on all your Blogs this evening.
I love that you come visit me and leave all you lovely comments for me  .......   BUT tonight I am "shattered" to say the least.
The Tearoom was extremely busy today.  Run off our feet we were.   Elaine is an absolute Whizz in the kitchen, thank goodness we do not do full meals we would never cope.     We serve things like Homemade Soup, Toasties, Paninis, Baked Potatoes with lots of different fillings.   Teas, Coffees, Scones and Cream Cakes ....... Mmmmm!!! the cream cakes are to die for!!!
Today Elaine and I had our lunch a 3.30pm even then we were interrupted.   It went quite so we thought   ...  Right lets eat.   We did get most of it eaten when 4 ladies came in for Afternoon Tea,  that started more people coming in.  The Tearoom closes at 4.30 but we were still clearing up at that time.
I am scheduling this for later.  Off to have a shower, get my PJs on, feet up, there is good chance I might just fall asleep.
Today I am showing you what we did at the class on Tuesday past. 
A few of the ladies wanted to make this box. I have a few made and in my cabinet for sale.

Box and card front are cut from Tilda card/paper
The box is cut using Heartfelt Creation Die "Gift Ensemble" HCD 735
You have to cut the shape out 4 times to form the box......a lot of cutting out to get them ready for the class.
Base Card is 4 x 4 then using up what was left from the 12 x 12 sheet of paper after cutting out the box
"Thank You" is a Stamping Up Stamp (ladies had a choice of what they wanted to use)
Ribbon for the box and bow on the card.
My boxes for sale are decorated but the ladies were delighted with what they managed to do
We will get round to making Roses for decoration sometime soon.  Some of the ladies I know would manage but some are far from ready to start making them just yet.

That`s it for today 
Thank you for taking time to call round I really appreciate it
Have a wonderful weekend

  5. Hello Patricia,
    What pretty paper. Nice to see something without a Christmas theme. I wish I lived near you or John nextdoor I could do with lessons in box making. Mine come out all bent. Hope you had a restful evening.

  9. Good morning Patricia, I can now see why you found it hard going on Tuesday with your ladies making these boxes, I thought it was your other little ones you where making with them. I love that paper been looking on line at it, but will wait and see what I pick up in Canada first.
    Take it easy I know you have the boys but they can amuse themselves. You just need to be on hand to feed them.

  15. Hi Patricia, I hope you have managed to get a rest, no wonder you are shattered. The tearoom sounds to be thriving, which is good for Elaine, but sounds like it is 'taking it's toll', hopefully you will re-charge your batteries for the next shift.
    Your box and card from the craft class is really pretty, no wonder the ladies love coming to your classes, they will be 'over the moon' when you show them how to do your roses, lucky ladies.
    Have a restful weekend.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
