Handmade flowers are all the rage and they are so fun and inexpensive to make! Come to this class and let me show you how to make 10 different flowers. You can then take them home to use on any project. Everything will be pre-cut for this class, but you will need to bring a tape runner, glue dots, piercing tool, and micro-tip scissors.

 Cost - $18
 RSVP by July 10th to reserve your spot! Payment is not due until day of class, but I do need to order your kit.   You are also able to order this kit long distance as it comes with cutting grids, photos, and full instructions.  The stamped images are pre-stamped when you order long distance.

4) Exclusive Gathering Promotion
Summer is a difficult time to hold a Home Gathering or Workshop.  I know how busy life can be!!  However, I have a great alternative for you - an online Gathering!!  You set up the ending date with me, and I send you a link.  From there, you input all of your friend's e-mails  and invite them to order online.  When you and your friends order online, you are able to take advantage of all the specials, clearance items - everything!  Hold an online Gathering with me during July or August that totals $250 in sales, and you will receive an extra $20 in select product of your choice as a gift from me! This is a fabulous way to earn FREE product this summer!
