Well, I promised I’d tell you all about the workshop I went to last Sunday.
Firstly, I have to say what a fantastic time I had! All I knew was that it was an Advent Calender workshop and that was about it. When I saw what we were making I was over the moon. Totally up my street 🙂 Shirley was fantastic and went through it step by step and made it sooooo easy to understand (but it did take 6 1/2 hours to make, but I enjoyed every minute of it.) 😀 Everything was totally made from scratch, from the covering of the card for the layers, the stamping and glossing of the numbers, making each drawer and there each individual sleeve & handles and the large hinged box at the top. And obviously the construction and decorating of the end product. Which is why it took so long, but I definitely think it was worth it…if I do say so myself 🙂 Ha! Ha!
All the little tips I was told along the way, were very invaluable too. I learn’t so much.
