Details below!
First up, gift wrap! Join us on Saturday, December 8 from 4 – 7 pm for a holiday gathering that is part workshop, part holiday party. Penny Post will teach you how to wrap and ribbon like a pro, and provide plenty of gift wrap and ribbon to get you started, then I’ll share a few DIY ideas for embellishing your gifts! Bring your unwrapped presents,we’ll provide all the supplies! Oh, and we’ll even have snacks from Buttercream Bakeshop and our Spiced Winter Punch to enjoy! If all of that isn’t enough, everyone in attendance will receive a $10 Penny Post gift card to spend on additional wrap, cards, ribbons, gift tags, or whatever else strikes your fancy. It’s going to be so fun – sign up right here!
On Sunday, December 9 join us for a day of making handmade gifts with Kelly Laughlin of Odette Press. Join us for a paper marbling workshop from 10 am – noon, where you’ll make your own collection of marbled paper to turn into notecards, gift tags, and more! Then join us for a bookbinding workshop and learn how to make hand stitched journals from 1 – 3 pm! Bookbinding workshop participants will also receive a tool kit that you can use to make additional journals at home. Both workshops are great for beginners and all supplies will be provided. Come have fun and make some one of a kind holiday gifts while you’re at it!
Hope to see you there!
