Happy Fall, Y'all !!

 Our October gathering will be on Sunday, October 18th at 1:00, at my house.  Please check it out and plan to come along!!   
      At our September session, we had a lot of excitement over a project I have made in the past (see attached photos), and so we will make at least the "guts" of the accordion box on the 18th. I made a Christmas Cookie Recipe box and a Halloween costume box. In the Halloween box, you can see the tags that go into the slots for photos or journaling. 
     There are many options for the purpose and decor of the box, including any theme you'd like, recipes, books/authors, Thanksgiving dinner recipes, annual journal(each pocket would be for a month and could hold photos and journaling for that month), grandchildren, passwords, address file, a kind of family tree, etc. and any of these could become a gift for someone, which opens up themes of their interests! WHEW!! 
     If you know what you'd like your box to be, and/or how you'd like to decorate it, you can bring patterned cardstock (3-4 of the 12x12 size) and matching solid colored card stock to make your box. Otherwise, we'll use Kraft card stock (which I'll provide)to be decorated later.
     I will prepare the chipboard for the box, magnets for the closure, envelopes for the inside pockets, Kraft card stock

oh, and you need to bring tape runner adhesive - strong like scor-tape, and regular; plus your papercutter, ruler.  If you have a craft kit put together, it's always a good idea to bring it!

Thanks all! I hope to hear from you soon!!
