Inchies Club meets tonight from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. After the inchies exchange, Sue White is going to share a simple holiday project:

"I have a bow pattern to show everyone. but they will need to bring a paper cutter, tacky glue(that dries really fast), a 12x12 sheet of paper patterned on both sides, and a small hole punch about 3/8 or 1/4 inch. Its the bows you buy in a package at Christmas, really easy to make."
-- Sue White

So, make sure Inchies Club is on your calendar today and remember to bring:
  • paper cutter
  • quick-drying tacky glue
  • 12x12 double-sided patterned paper
  • small hole punch (3/8-inch or 1/4 inch)

From May Arts' blog . . .

"It was like Christmas for me when I received Little Yellow Bicycle’s Once Upon a Christmas collection!  I knew these elegant papers would pair so well with May Arts' ribbons.  I’m going to show you how to create a dimensional flower using our wide satin ribbon and rubber stamps.
Using Staz-On Ink, stamp flower images of descending sizes onto wide satin ribbon.
Roughly cut around each flower, leaving a small margin.
You will want to cut 2-3 flowers for each size.  Also cut one of each size from the Sheer/Twinkle ribbon.
Carefully melt the edges of the flowers by holding the ribbon near a candle flame.
The petals will curl, producing an organic look.
Layer the petals together, and stitch in the center to form your flower.  Assemble the card as shown, using the velvet ribbon to edge the cream patterned paper, and to add a decorative knot above the journaling card.  Add the gold crocheted ribbon underneath the flower to tie in the gold poinsettia."
