October Craft Night

**price update!!! the soild paper pumpkins (first below) start at only .25!!!
we got lucky with a fabulous paper sale! so, if you want to do a simple bargain craft to
keep or give away, this one's perfect!**

My goodness, ladies, it's been a long time since we've posted anything!!!

First - next craft night! Elisabeth Hansen is graciously hostessing at her place:

Wednesday, October 24th, 6:30pm


Elisabeth has some WAY fun food planned, so come hungry!

Here are our projects...

Folded paper pumpkins - can be any size & style you want!(ie, ours will NOT look exactly like those pictured...this is just inspiration)  I'll have 3-4 paper choices if you order - OR bring any paper you want to get rid of (or that you want to match your decor) or an old book you can use pages from. (for a more mod b/w look) We'll be cutting, assembling, making stems & vines, etc. Bring scissors! $1 for small, $1.50 for medium, $2.00 for large, $3.00 for X-large (you can make as few or as many as you want).

Another easy paper craft! Again, cutting & assembling - please bring scissors or a paper cutter (the best thing for the strips!). I'll have standard orange, green, black, white & a patterned paper available. $1 per pumpkin to cover paper, adhesive, pipe cleaners.

These are easy peasy, too! The form is a roll of toilet paper :o)  $3.00 for twine, tp & hot glue. ** I am double checking price on twine & will modify this by end of day if needed**

Skeleton Frame

Sorry the pic for the skeleton frame would NOT load - - for some reason, no matter where I sourced from, it wouldn't transfer as a regular image.

This is a great way to use broken halloween decor (like that old set of pumpkin or skeleton lightst that don't work anymore!) as your central shape - also, a great way to use an old frame, especially if it's already black!

$2 to cover frame, paint, glitter, ribbon, halloween shape. IF the ornaments prove too difficult or expensive to get, we'll have chipboard shapes & letters to use.

Wreath - Marcia is spearheading this one - we're not positive if it will happen this craft night, I'll have her post on that! Part of the issue is difficulty spray painting in lousy weather :o) So, it may be postponed to a later craft night.
Still working on setting up a google doc for orders - i haven't used it in years & they just changed formats! I just need some time to set it up.

Please be thinking about your orders - they need to be in by October 22nd (MONDAY) at the latest, to Angie.

We want you ALL to come - even if you don't want to do a project or have anything else you'd like to bring to work on! This is a great ladies-night-out to catch up with friends & neighbors - so, you are more than welcome to come & eat, chat, help, craft, whatever! Start RSVPing NOW so food can be planned - then order anytime thru the due date.
