Make your own cards!
THE PEOPLE of Greystones tapped into their creative sides last weekend with a ‘Make your Own Christmas Cards Day.’
The creative workshop was held in the upstairs of Premier Arts and Crafts at the Blackloin Centre.
From midday to 5.30 p.m. a huge number of people descended on the workshop to create their own personalised Christmas cards for the festive season.
Demonstrator and teacher of card making and scrapbooking, Cliona Larkin, held the fun and exciting workshop.
Over one and a half hour sessions people came to put pen to paper and glitter to glue creating some personal and very stylish Christmas Cards.
Everybody was given an opportunity to make their own Christmas cards whilst having access to many stamps, papers and goodies that they may not have themselves at home.
Everyone from absolute beginners to advanced were welcomed to join in the fun.
People could make cards with the help of Cliona or the more advanced or brave worked on their own.
With all her stock at their disposal the creative process was made very easy.
Card makers were also treated to tea, soft drinks, mulled wine and festive mince pies.
Cliona was delighted with the turnout and this year many friends and family around Greystones can now expect a unique Christmas Card to fall through the letterbox.
