Hand Stitched Deer Ornament 

Adding a new ornament to the tree every year is a wonderful Christmas tradition, and it is even better when an ornament is made by hand. Courtney Cerruti demonstrates how to create a rustic fawn ornament using felt, simple embroidery and hand stitching. You will want to make this sweet project for all of your loved ones.




Woven Paper Star

Create a beautiful, dimensional, woven paper star using paper strips. Lightweight and airy, this star adds a delicate, geometric presence and can be hung as an ornament, garland, or as paper artist Dawn M. Cardona will show you, string a few together to make a unique door hanger. In this class you will also learn how to customize using hand painted papers and alter the size of your stars so that they can be adapted for any occasion.




How to Make Watercolor Cards

Learn how to make simple watercolor cards that you’ll enjoy making just as much as your friends and family will enjoy receiving. Courtney Cerruti demonstrates how to create elegant motifs using watercolor and simple brushstrokes or how to use a stencil to apply watercolor if you feel intimidated by the medium. Learn how to personalize your cards with a family photo and make photocopies to create an entire set of handmade cards. Finally, add that same personal touch to your envelopes by making an envelope liner using the same photocopied watercolor technique.
