I went to an art retreat a few weeks ago called Spellbound. It was so inspiring how everything was put together from the name tags to the class kits. I thought I would borrow some of their amazing ideas for my own class I am teaching that's coming up.
This class is for my "Silver Tray Books". Each kit comes with a pre cut tray for the front of the book and sheet metal for the back. Two brass hinges, all the hardware and watercolor paper for the inside. I made these bags to put everything in. Most of the time I think I do this stuff to amuse myself but I know the ladies will appreciate it like I do.
Then I made these name tags for each of the ladies. They look like I soldered them but I saved time by just using silver tape instead of the copper and didn't even need to add solder. Everything is glued together and a pin was added to the back to wear the day of class so I can remember everyone's names.
One of the ladies at Spellbound used these trays in her class. She got them at the .99 cent store. I hunted them down and had to have them. They work perfectly with the class theme don't you think. After I put everything together on the trays I tied it with old seam binding ribbon and added the name tags. I love how they turned out.
By the end of Saturday everyone should have a finished book that looks something like this one.
