November Newsletter!

Cherry Blossom Paperie’s November Newsletter!
Thanksgiving is approaching and it reminds me of the many things I’m thankful for. Thankful that the fall weather has lasted this long and thankful for you, such encouraging and inspiring customers! Lots going on this month including the Holiday Preview on November 20th. Although, if you’ve been in the store lately, you know that our holiday preview has already begun!

November 19th: Demonstration on making paper ornaments at the library.
November 20th: Holiday Preview from 1:00-5:00pm
November 29th: 4-5 year old Children’s Art Class! $7.50, all materials provided. 4:30-5:30pm. (Last Thursday of every month, except it’s Tuesday this month because the last Thursday is ThanksgivingJ).

                *We will be open until 8:00pm on the first four Thursdays of December.
Our DIY project this month is the paper tree cutouts featured in our front window. If you are too busy this holiday season to make your own, we also have some for sale in the shop. If you don't subscribe to our newsletter, email lacey@cherryblossompaper.com for the pattern. Cut out the shape (for larger ones enlarge at 125% on a copy machine). Fold sheets of cardstock (available in our store) in half lengthwise. Trace one tree shape onto each sheet of cardstock, aligning the fold line of the pattern with the folded edge of the cardstock. On an appropriate cutting surface, use a craft knife or very sharp small scissors to cut through both cardstock layers on the traced lines. Open up the tree shapes (at least 2) and layer one over the other. Sew the trees together down the center fold with thread and a needle or a sewing machine. Position the tree halves at right angles to each other to stand the trees upright.
