Well, the workshop started to loom large and I really didn't want to make any more cards; I didn't want the workshopeers to experience card fatigue! I decided it would be fun to have some little stocking filler type makes. And I have to admit that I geared the makes to things I could use myself.
Here is a 6" card, treated like a card and decorated like a card. And then glued shut. So now it's a gift card holder....with room for the other gubbins it comes with - you know, the card bit that holds it and tells you where you can spend it, and the receipt part - you aren't really sure whether you're meant to give it to the recipient or not...all that. And it has a large die cut bracket as an easel so that it can be treated like a card if desired. And the best bit (for forgetful women of a certain age - ME) - it's big enough to fit in my handbag , but big enough that I couldn't forget to use it on the shopping trip.
Of course there's nothing that can't be helped, eased or corrected by the use of chocolate, and so it may very well be against the law not to put some in everyone's stocking. Marks and Spencer very helpfully have their Hot Chocolate powder drink in sensible sachet shapes - making a quick wrapper couldnt have been easier.
So that was the workshop that was To Be Arranged. Next year, when we get that far into the schedule, I'm going to have it listed as The Christmas Miracle Workshop: she's still able to come up with SOMETHING.
