Hi Everyone, the saga of my makes last and this week continue. I have been persuaded to help out in a new craft club for mentally challenged people, with a view to opening to others. I had shown them one card which was well received.
The trouble is I have never taught crafting and don't consider myself knowledgeable enough to teach it, however, I felt better when I showed them a punch from the stash that had been donated and they didn't know what it was or how it worked and were astonished, yep! that's the correct word, to see how it worked.
Anyhow, I decided although we haven't got 10 people yet, I looked for an easy card, but different and yes! I went into the Silhouette again. I'm getting boring aren't I? but this file was so simple and looked quite difficult that I went for it, but after nearly 2 days of cutting (not continuous), I began to think I had chosen the wrong card! So many pieces!
Here it is, all 10 copies were done, bagged and even with ribbon that I measured so all were the same. I believe this is the way classes are prepared, OK! maybe not this way, but I thought I would try it. I've only been to one Zoom class where pieces were prepared for us, so got the idea from that. Otherwise I am winging it!
card design - SVG Cuts Tea Cup Box Card
floral paper - Craft Sensations
sentiment and back cup piece was printed and cut
tag was stamped with a magazine freebie
These are the pieces for one card.
This is the card I made as an example for them to see what they could achieve.
I promise you, it really is VERY easy.
sorry it's blurred, but I wanted to show the envelope pattern in the stripes.
a better photo of cup and envelope
this is the sentiment, it's written with a pen in the Silhouette program,
not printed as above, in the pieces photo.
this is the tea cup card flat for postage, just fold and into the envelope.
EDIT - When I went to the class only 3 people were there and I didn't think, maybe selfish of me, that after all the work I put it in, it was worth doing it for 3 people, so I showed them something else and will wait for the class to grow, the organiser tells me she is going to start doing word of mouth to different classes and clubs who use the hall. So maybe it's won't be too long before these are used after all.
Now all I have to do is plan what to do each week, I need to teach them different things, but have to sort through all the donation stuff first, I have to design at home until then. Help and ideas would be appreciated from you clever ladies, even best size of classes maybe?
