Holiday Ornaments

Using solder, glass, copper tape and whatever photo or gorgeous paper & embellishment (flat) you want to incorporate, create a beautiful ornament. Then choose beautiful ribbons to hang them on your tree or like I do, hang them around the house year round. My friend did these for me as a gift and I loved them and thought they would be a great project. More examples will be at the function.

Supplies to Bring: Small photo (2x2), or any totally flat item you want to incorporate. This can be a rub on, sticker, stamp or anything completely flat.

Note: All projects will be on display at the Wingate. If you can't stay to create, directions will be available with your project kit so you can complete them at home.

Here's a few other ideas that will be on display.

Gorgeous, gorgeous! Do you sell the kits with instructions for those who don't live in Bozeman?

Elizabeth--Hello, sorry I just saw these two comments so I hope this is how you get a response. I'll email also. Friday night is the crop and there is no charge, however, if you want to work on Saturday as well you can, you just might get moved out of the big room into the dining area or the room next to that. You may be able to stay in the room, I just don't know how many people will show up to do projects. Email me if you have more questions--hope you can come!!


Sheila and the gang said...

In response to Deborah in Milwaukee--if we have projects left we'll be happy to send you what ever you would like. All projects will have color photos and directions. Thanks and email if you have further questions.

Can you please break down the costs of each of the projects that will be available on Saturday. I am interested in coming, but will have to know the prices ahead of time, since I will be traveling from Helena.
Thanks so much!!

Each project will be done using materials you choose so each project will be a little differently priced based on things you choose to purchase and things you don't. Basically, the for sure costs for each project will be as follows; $5.00 for directions with photos for each class. The Star class is $17.00 for the small star and $25.00 for the large plus paper, The purse book is sold out--but to reorder items it is roughly $35.00. The Glass ornaments are $3.50 each--they include all supplies. The shadow box frame is $7.00 for frame and $2.50 for acrylic front plus paper and ribbon of your choice. The card classes are between $12.00 and $15.00. The Recipe Photo Stand is $30.00 for the 7-Gypsies stand plus papers and other embellishments--anywhere from $15.00 to $20.00 more depending on your choices. The Artist Printers tray is $20.00 for the wooden tray plus supplies you choose. And lastly is the Soldered ornaments which will be approximately $4.00 to $5.00 each. All projects are awesome. Also, you will have lots of leftover supplies from each project which allows you to do more on some if you want.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you'll have some leftover recipe holder kits to send to WI. If I could have more than one, that would be fabu! I'll be wanting the deluxe version and will rely upon your good taste . . . the picture looks awesome!

$5.00 for directions with photos for each class. The Recipe Photo Stand is $30.00 for the 7-Gypsies stand plus papers and other embellishments--$20.00 more depending on your choices. I could use this for something other than recipes, so other Graphic 45 papers would be fine, too: Renaissance Faire, Transatlantique, Christmas Past, BotanicaBella. Thanks for being willing to ship extra kits.

Hoping, hoping, hoping . . . :)
