D&P Workshop

Christmas Exploding Box!

What awful weather! But hey, that didn't stop our eager crafters from enjoying themselves today at our Christmas exploding box workshop in Hillier's Nursery. 

We used a wide range of tools and products to create festive exploding boxes, all of which can be bought through D&P's website  at or by visiting our shop in Horsham.
 Our crafters thoroughly enjoyed putting these boxes together and being imaginative with the decorations. See the pictures below to see the crafters in action!

The poinsettia was made by using the Nellie Snellen Floral Punch Large Rose Leaf. Punch 8 green leaves, 8 red leaves and a 1.5 inch circle. Using silicone glue, layer the green leaves on the circle to the outer edge with the red leaves placed in between the green leaves to give a layered effect. Use a stamen punch to create the centre. See images below.

Come and join our friendly group of crafters for more exciting classes, which are run once a month on a Wednesday morning. In the next class (17/10/12) will be using Kanban Christmas toppers to make delightful stepper and shaker cards. Please call Pat for more information on 01403 264123.
