Christmas Card Tin Class

Where does the time go! With dark mornings and dark evenings plus work in the middle, the days seem to whizz by lately. Not much creativity for me recently but I did do the Christmas Card Tin Class with six of my crafting buddies last week which was great fun! So here's what everyone made. I've made one before using the now retired Ski Slope papers but this time we used Merry Moments. We started with a plain silver A5 tin which we decorated inside and out and then made six cards to go inside. I was probably being a bit ambitious asking everyone to make them all in the time we had but they all completed four cards and finished the rest off at the crop on Saturday.

It's funny how we all like to make these things but consider them too precious to give away. I don't think anyone is planning on giving it as gift! lol

If you'd like to make one, I have the plain silver tins for sale on the sidebar for £3.50 each plus postage. (Postage will be calculated on checkout.) You can also purchase the step by step class instructions, with colour photos, on how to decorate the tin and make all six cards for £2.95. Use the Christmas Card Tin 'Buy Now' button on the lefthand sidebar and they will be emailed to you in pdf format within the next 24 hours. Just one thing I need to point out, the instructions are ALL in metric.

If you have any questions, please email me at

Tfl, Jo
