Advance notice - papercraft summer workshops

Our summer workshop this year will be for papercraft only, and will be on 20th August 2011 between 10am and 4pm.

We will be covering various techniques during the morning and then will use what we've made to make our cards in the afternoon.  There will be two cards to make, both boxed.  One will double up as a post it holder, and the other will be an embossed book.

Look out for further details...


For those interested in doing paper flowers, I have listed below some useful places to get your punches either online or by personal visit.
