August Newsletter

Cherry Blossom   Paperie’s August Newsletter!
Wow, is it August already?  Summer is just flying by! Lots of great things happening here at Cherry Blossom Paperie!
August: Children’s Art Classes ages 4-7, every Wednesday from 4:30-5:30pm during August!
August 25th: Alcohol Ink Class from 7:00-9:00pm! Experimenting with different techniques on tags, tiles, glass, or metal (can be used on most shiny surfaces) $25.00 (Includes applicator, 3 bottles of alcohol ink, blending solution, and tags and tiles)
September 15th: Corrugated Collage Class/Workshop from 7:00-9:00pm! Using cardboard and found objects, repurposing them to create signs, cards, artwork, and/or scrapbook layouts.  $15.00 (All kinds of materials provided, but if you have objects you would like to use, feel free to bring them too!)
If you are familiar with a) the internet and b)handmade items, then you’ve probably heard of/shopped at (You can check out our Etsy shop here). One thing I love about Etsy is their treasuries. A full page of items all relating to one theme. So, for our August newsletter, I’ve created a “Back to School” Treasury for you from items for sale at our shop.

Yep, even a few Halloween items thrown in there already! We hope that you’ve all had a wonderful summer and are getting ready to get back into the routines that this time of year brings. If you are looking to make a cute back to school/Fall accessory, I found this great DIY project on the blog of my favorite clothing store. Just click here.  It’s a very cute vintagey fabric flower that is similar to some of the ones we carry in our store. Enjoy!
