October Class Update

I just learned from the Kansas City Paper Source Manager that corporate Paper Source has chosen not to offer the Leaf Wreath Kit this fall...so my class on October 1st will take another direction, but don't Despair!
I'll still show you what you can do with the cool Leaf Templates and how to make your own leaf templates. I'll soon show you pictures from my treasure trove of ideas. You'll want to buy a Maple Leaf Punch. I'll show you how to go crazy with the punch & fun ribbon!

Fall Leaf Projects: Fall Pop-Up Cards, Bottle Wrapper, Fall Placemats & Napkin Rings, and Fall Leaf Garland.
