Pretty Paper Ornaments

pretty paper ornamentThere’s a local scrapbooking & stamping store, Scrapbook Cottage, where I love to take classes. They not only offer scrapbook and card making classes, they offer classes where you can learn how to make paper sculptures, such as shoes and purses and also paper crafted ornaments. Just over a week ago, I went to an ornament making class. In the class we learned how to make some beautiful hand-crafted Victorian themed Christmas ornaments. Take a look and see what you think.pretty paper ornament

And I do have an affection for glitter, so I had plenty of glitter to choose from at home. I really enjoyed taking this class and meeting, Lori, the new teacher at the store. It was a delightful evening!
