Workshop purse card and box

A friend of mine held a very successful workshop today with 13 people. The girls made a purse card which was a direct take from Jean's who adapted hers from another site she saw. All the kits were done with different DSP from the Stampin' Up range, brads and ribbons to match. To make the flowers, a scallop punch was used then every second petal was cut then embossed all over, then on the other side a line scored into the uncut petals, a push with the embossing tool in the centre, and voila, a flower. Two flowers from the Spring Bouquet punch were treated in the same manner with a brad through all three.
I think the flowers were a big hit with the ladies 'cause a couple of the punches were sold. lol
Thanks to the person that put how to do these flowers on Splitcoast Stampers.

The little hanging box is really simple and it's thanks to Karen for giving me her box template. For my hostess today, a reinker was placed inside a box and given as a thank you. Robyn loved it and wanted another one to put in hers that she made today, to even things up she said. rofl

The last thing we did was to play a Christmas Left and Right game. Everyone chooses very wisely a little gift and then a story was read. Everytime they heard 'left' or 'right', the gift had to be passed onto the next person in the appropriate direction. So the little gift they had 'chosen wisely' didn't stay with them long. Heaps of fun and lots of laughs, 'specially from me. rofl
I'm pretty sure everyone who was there enjoyed themselves immensely.
