For over 2 years now I have been part of a card club. I use to attend classes at the nearby Scrapbook store. After 2 times I realized, I could do this myself... for FREE! I asked friends and family if they would want to do it and 2 1/2 years later we are still going strong!
Basically what happens is we pick a theme (or just do a free for all) and everyone comes up with their card design. Then on the night of the swap they bring supplies for everyone to make their card. It is so much fun and we are all learning new things!
We meet about every other month and have between 10-15 people come. It's awesome!
This past swap we decided to change things up a bit and do gift bags instead of cards. Including tag and matching tissue paper. Here is my gift bag.
I just did strips of paper in all the rainbow colors.
I threw a quote on it to add a little extra touch. "Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams you dare to dream really do come true."
Then for the tag I put dream big with an orange stone. I was pleased with my design. Everyone had such great ideas!
