Make your own cards!

Bray People - - Propertyextra -

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.
