Quarterly Stamp a Sack  10 – 4      £40

Stamp a sack is  a bit of a conumdrum! What is is. Spelling is not my strong point and this was a typo it should say Stamp a Stack!  Meaning a stack of cards….. however the ‘stamp a sack has stuck as I always give customers a brown paper sack to put their cards in as they finish them. This ‘sack’ holds the envelopes from the beginning and often has a tag with a name attached or we find time to decorate the sack.

Saturday November 4th

This quarter its mostly about Christmas cards. There will be 6 designs of christmas cards – making 4 of each design, this would give you 24 cards at the end of the day. There will be one card that is not christmas related incase you need some birthday or other card, this will be an alternative to one of the christmas card designs.

Making so many cards takes time so this is an all day class. We will have a  break in the middle of the day to lunch in the cafe. We will pre order this in the morning but it is not included in the price.

A basic tool kit of adhesive, dimensionals, scissors, bone scorer, ruler etc will be required. Adhesive etc can be purchased on the day.
