Holiday Gift Boxes Workshop T H I S Weekend: Dec 3rd & 4th

This weekend's workshop has 5 seats left and we need just one more seat for the workshop to make. 

We'll be making two containers - one is a collapsable box with six sides. 
They're great for mailing as a gift and I use them all the time to hold brushes and tools. 

The other structure is a hinged lidded box. They can be dressed up or down and are tons of fun to make.

Happy Holidays!


PS: If you've gotten this e-mail more than once, sorry. I'm working on streamlining my mailing lists... time to get on the MailChimp train!
